Bug Description

When using media keys, particularly the volume adjustment keys on my keyboard, they currently work just like regular keys, which means that when you hold them down, they generate a single keypress, then a small delay, then a series of rapid key presses. When adjusting sound volume, this behavior is incredibly annoying. It means that if you hold down the volume up/down keys, you either get a single step of adjustment if you let go quickly, or you bring the volume all the way to the max/min. The way I expect them to work, and the way they work in Windows, is that if you hold them down, the volume begins to adjust slowly and relatively smoothly.

In conclusion, the naive implementation of media keys as regular keys causes holding down the volume buttons to to something uncontrollable and useless.

I have to agree with this. I don't think the currently implementation is bad by any means but it could be improved a little. Maybe it works more poorly after adjusting the default rate.
