See, I have a bigger question - why? Looks like a case of stretching  
the metaphor too far to me. Would you create a full onscreen keyboard  
for every text input?

This input layout is great for physical fingers, but a royal PITA with  
a mouse. So why not just allow the user to use their real world keypad  
and have a simple input box?

I'm sure there's a Jakob on this somewhere...
