I think the whole keypress issue is giving me too many sleepless nights.

The reason why I found it wrong was two reasons.

1. It is valuable to be able to do String.fromCharCode(event.keyCode) in a
keypress handler.
2. This is what Firefox does.

I think I'm starting to lean towards not touching keypress again and tell
people to only use keydown, keyup and textInput.
