+1, kind of.  I'm enjoying Kagu more and more, and it occurred to me
today to wonder if it is possible to lock the screen, but not the
keys.  Then one could do a useful set of things (skipping forward and
back, and increasing/decreasing volume) without having to take the
tablet out of one's pocket.

(I think that's broadly in the category your email is aiming at.)
