Other than opening a github issue at the entire powertools repo level is there any way to send MS feedback about the proposal?

I'm very interested in one of the stretch features:

Quote:
Currently, there exists no plan to incorporate the creation of shortcuts for specific keyboards. Is this an expected use case?


I'm using a tool that AutoHotKey's forum recommended instead of AHK to map the keys on my macbook's built in keyboard to windows standard (Apple's hardware map has the modifiers mapped to match macOS behavior) without simultaneously reversing the order of modifiers on my external keyboard. Unfortunately that tool's driver appears to be buggy; and at least once a week when waking from sleep or plugging my dock in I lose all hardware keyboard function and have to reboot. Mad | :mad:

A friend of mine has a related problem that being able to treat different keyboards distinctly would address. He's trying to learn a foreign language with a cyrillic alphabet; in Linux setting up one keyboard to use the US layout and the second to use a foreign one is only a few clicks. Short of using AHK or some other sketchy software to remap keys one at a time there's no way to do that in windows at all.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
