Nope that's the way I've done it. I can happily run a Delta as a little
Linux computer with nothing more than the LCD screen and PS/2 keyboard as
the "console" (in fact I do it quite often). I've also arranged for the
matrix keys on top of the phone to duplicate the functionality of the
similarly named PS/2 keys (so qwerty can be used on top of phone as well if
you're a masochist with pointy fingers). The unique matrix keys generate
their own unique keycodes too.
