GDK/GTK abstraction for RGB and monochrome backlit keyboards?

Many keyboards are now backlited and almost all seem programmable.

This could be used in many applications ( like key hints through various menus etc).
It would be great if there was common abstraction for such devices, even if userland/kernel drivers had to be added for various models etc.

IN the same venue for pointers, is there something for devices like 3DConnexion’s:

It’s extremely unlikely GDK will grow this kind of API.

I recommend writing a library to access this kind of functionality; you probably want to write something like libratbag, which is used to access programmable mice and pointing devices.
