One other thing: If you press on the number 2 for, say, 5 seconds, what
would you expect to happen?

1. One "Up" command, at the time of pressing
2. One "Up" command, at the time of depressing (after 5 seconds)
3. More than one "Up" command, depending on the duration.

With computers you tend to expect (3). Asterisk will give you (2).
(Not to mention that with computers you tend to expect 2 to be "Down")
