------- Comment #17 from hbono at chromium.org  2009-03-02 01:01 PDT -------
Thank you for your comments.
They make sense, my change is too dependent on Chromium and we should not put
such platform-dependent code there.

By the way, I'm wondering if there is a plan of fixing the KeyboardEvent class
so that it can expose left/right information in near future.
If there is a plan, we should wait implementing Chromium-dependent code until
the KeyboardEvent class is updated to avoid duplicates.

Sorry for my stupid question in advance.
