I wanted it in that way, so I coded it in. Please keep in mind that my version
is NOT the official. The idea behind that was that I wanted to use the F11 and
F12 keys as a replacement for two of the SunKeys, since I don't know anything
that uses these keys under *ix.

not quite, because I like to open an X session remote via xdm like:
X -once -query <targetmachine>
that's where I would get lost with your code. I need to analyse the DISPLAY
variable as well.

It's hat to hit me personally. I know that kind of stuff, when I once coded a
procedure called something like
(only in german)

But please don't be offended, that I renamed it in my tarball.

And now for something about the options general:
It's sad that we compile code in that's never being used like

woundn't it be better to use

in order to keep the compiled code small?
