I would propose that this is a bad idea.  I use a Bluetooth keyboard about
40% of the time, and Maemo is very good about NOT popping up the keyboard
when my BT keyboard is active.

That said, I have noticed that something in gre-calendar interferes with the
pop-up keyboard.  You can get the smaller keyboard but not the finger
keyboard when entering a new event.
