There are some fixes on server-1.4-branch now, and input-fixes-for-1.4.1
has some fixes to at least generally light up LEDs (mostly cherry-picked
from Peter's MPX work: thanks!).  The input event processing is still a
horrible, horrible disaster, though.  Also, if you have Caps Lock
remapped (e.g. ctrl:nocaps), the LED will still light up even so (but I
think I know what the issue is).  Even so, progress.

Please test this (distributors especially) and give me feedback.

The axis scaling thing still isn't fixed yet, but I will get to that.
