the volume and brightness functions can be disabled or changed
simply by specifying a different (or by not specifying a) script
to be run -- see the usage message, and modify the hal startup
file accordingly.  other than those features, i think the rest (i.e.,
grab keys, etc) is all-or-nothing (without modifying the source, of
course).
