SYMBIAN: keyboard shortcuts

Description

Would it be possible for keyboard shortcuts
traditionally assigned to letters (l - Look at, p -
Pick up, g - Give etc.) to be remapped to the
alphanumeric keyboard of mobile phones (for instance,
1 - look at, 2 - pick up and so on)?

After playing Monkey Island 1 on my Symbian Nokia for
some time I feel I would greatly appreciate such a
feature.

Since numeric keys are used to select inventory items,
a method of combining both functions into a single set
of keys must be devised. Perhaps one of the currently
unused phone keys could be used as a switch - to
toggle between two keyboard modes? Or add another
combination with 0 to act as the switch, 0+4 for
instance?

The current behaviour should, however, be retained for
dialogs, where numeric keys pick the corresponding
answer.

This might be interesting for the WinCE port, too. However, this would be
specific to the games -- this request really only applies for SCUMM gamse, and
there only for V1-V5 (and maybe V6) games, which have classic style "verbs".
Several other games supported by ScummVM do not lend themselves to such a
control feature.
Still, might be nice to have for those games, I guess...
