Heh, ya I'm one of those people.  But the ipaq has a keyboard.  At
least, it has buttons that generate keysyms.  I wasn't thinking of an
ipaq as an embedded machine though...

But if you are running a wm, you by definition have a user interface.
It follows from having a user interface that you have user input.
Unless its all mouse motion stuff (in which case ratpoison is not the
right thing to run on the device), you will have some form of keyboard
input (even if its stroking letters with a pen).
