Oh -- great!

I hadn't realized the existance of the button-daemon in experimental 
(hence my use of scanbuttond). This is indeed a trivial change (renaming 
"startbutton" to "button") to make the fujitsu driver play nice.

It would be nice if we knew how to poll the other buttons ("send to" and 
such)... but that's just icing.
