Hi.  A feature suggestion; I personally hate PCs or more precisely BIOS,
biggest PoS I've ever encountered.  From the Unix and X11 side, it'd be
really sweet to be able send the myriad of PC function keys from a non-PC
keyboard via SOL to be able to control BIOS set-up and the BIOS
set-up/maintenance features of various raid cards etc.

The PC Weasel board was cool in this regard; hit the escape sequence (ctrl
shift 6), then k or something like that, then F 1 or F 1 2, or E S C, or
C T R L - S H I F T - 1, etc and it translated that to whatever the sequence
is for those keys.  Sadly, the Weasel isnt made anymore, but it didnt have
all the capabilities of IPMI anyway.
