You've got a point about the keyboard, in my haste to rant I totally
sidestepped that :)  A piano keyboard would be pretty lame if it didn't
support chords.  That said, I was reacting to the idea that Multi-Pointer X
was the way to handle the screen from a software standpoint.  Instead, if
the hardware supports multitouch, a custom API should be developed just for
the keyboard based on instantaneous pressure.  Multi-pointer would be
overkill to a simple solution.
