How has (keyboard) input init and handling changed between 6.8 and 7.2+ ?

I have an X device called Sunray which is a very thin client. The 
keyboard, mouse, and display are attached to a small node
which maintains a UDP connection to a unix host. The host computer runs 
a complete X server which has a ~ddx~ that keeps an in-core screen,
does pixel-scraping, and translates the screen, kbd, mouse stuff into a 
wire protocol.

I have all the initializations working and 2 out of 3 devices 
functioning (screen and mouse), but there doesn't seem to be a peep from 
the keyboard yet.
I'm thinking WaitForSomething() is either not seeing it or is disposing 
it as trash.

Ob-open-source:  Like all of our X work at Sun, this work will be 
licensed favorably to the community, but the legal process has not been
concluded yet.
