I don't know.

Yes, it should. For userspace there should be no difference between hidd 
based and kbdd based keyboard, both generate input events of same 
'quality'. Slight dufference may be that kbdd presents itself to the 
system as serial keyboard with name SerKBD. If something cares about 
this type and name, it can be easily tweaked in kbdd source.

kbdd is not right place for this code, it feeds events to kernel, such 
keyclick code should probably sit in some place which listens to input 
subsystem events so it works for any keyboard present in system. But 
still it is certainly possible to hack kbdd to do it too.
