I have been consulting http://wiki.laptop.org/go/OLPC_English_Keyboard
and performing some of my own tests with an external US-style keyboard
(Logitech Internet 350) on an XO-1.5 running XO-AU OS 10.1.3-au2.

So far I have determined that:

  * F1-F4 changes views (Neighbourhood/Friends/Home/Activity)
  * F5 switches to the journal
  * F6 shows the frame
  * F11/F12 controls volume (also, volume controls on most keyboards work)
  * right Alt behaves as AltGr
  * Windows key acts as Hand/Grab (hold this button and move on the
track pad to scroll)
  * my additional volume keys also work

It looks to me that the function/modifier keys for frame, volume and
grab are not mapped in the table on that wiki page. I didn't want to
edit it unless I was sure about it. Can someone knowledgeable please
confirm and/or update the page?
