Action Item #391
Add home button to apps along with global key-mapping file.

The home button will be something easily mapped from a keyboard, like Ctrl-H or F12 or similar. Each app should support reading of a global config file that specifies what the home key (and other special keys, like the asterisk key on Roku that allows app-specific configuration) is mapped to. That will make it easier to use different input devices (that all need to look like keyboards anyway).These apps need to be updated:
That's all the apps currently built for PiBox media platforms. Future apps will need the same mapping.

bui-network-config now has a Home button that actually just quits the app.
videofe support Ctrl-Q (case insensitive) and the Home button to quit.
Now I need to create the mapping file and figure out how to use that in these apps.

Tested bui-network-config on target and the configured keysym for HOME (the Escape key) works fine.
Integrated support for keysyms file in VideoFE and tested on target. It also works.
UI's keysym file is integrated into pmsui package.
Now I need to add it to piclock.
