GetKeyboardEvents is just an alias for GetKeyboardValuatorEvents, they do the
same thing.

But yeah - you can tack valuators to keyboard events if you must. These
valuators don't actually change the pointer and are forwarded as-is to the
client. Not sure if that is a bug or not, but I'm not aware of any device that
does it anyway.
