A500 keyboard controller firmware dumped

Just noticed this MESS/MAME commit. It seems someone has dumped the A500 keyboard microcontroller firmware. Not sure how much benefit emulating that might have for WinUAE, perhaps when Toni crosses some more items off his pointless/impossible-to-implement features list he could take a look...

It makes no functional difference and has no effect on compatibility = No.

Well not directly. But maybe we could get an A500 to USB keyboard adapter. That would sure make WinUAE even more interesting.

Or A500 keyboard to A1200 mobo adapter. For all kinds of modding.

Or A500/A2000 keyboard to USB adapter for PC. (for better/improved emulation experience)

Wondering, does a such adapter already exist ?

What does keyboard adapters have to do with original A500 keyboard controller firmware? There is nothing interesting or secrets inside the controller.
