Curious if this would work for +5, the holy grail

First, thanks for the effort, it's a great piece of code.
Trying desperately to get off g soft, have used this in combo with the Logitech, as will as writing macros for the extra buttons, with mixed results, and it occurs to me that it might work to mash it all up by putting x number of user defined inputs below the current mapping choices.
We could then pick our own non-conflicting key combos, install them in the extra buttons in the onboard memory, and tell Logitech to stuff their diesel powered code up their g hole.
It's not as elegant, perhaps, as hooking calls but it does put key conflict resolution on us rather than you, and it's not THAT hard to find unique keys.
C'mon Phil, I've been lurking your program for years, it's perfect. But I spent over $100 on a g700s and I hit those extra buttons like a rat on the feeder bar.
help a brother out.

Unfortunate, as described in the FAQ, XMBC is unable to pickup anything on buttons 5+ because XMBC uses Windows mouse hooks and quite simply, buttons 5+ don't send any Windows mouse messages so XMBC does not see them.
