Python keycode constants
Is there a list of Python keycode constants available for reference somewhere? Doing an if key == 'c' is easy enough, but it's trickier when you want to use the "weirder" keys like Insert and Delete.

If no one's done it already, we should compile one. I've already had to figure out a few of them already myself, so... :)

Vizard already handles special keys. For example, if you want to check for the insert and delete key being pressed you would do the following:


def onkeydown(key):
    if key == viz.KEY_INSERT:
        print 'Insert key pressed'
    elif key == viz.KEY_DELETE:
        print 'Delete key pressed'

There is a list of all the special keys in the documentation under "User Guide -> Appendix -> Keyboard Codes"

Hope this helps!
