'New keyboard and KeyRemap4MacBook key bindings'

Bought a new keyboard, the DAS Keyboard Professional S. Maybe now i'll finally learn how to code properly :)

Also, took some time to create key bindings for media and brightness controls (for [KeyRemap4MacBook](https://pqrs.org/macosx/keyremap4macbook/)) for it. Feel free to use my private.xml file and modify as you see fit. The script will only modify keys when the external keyboard is connected. Also, you might need to use the app's EventViewer to change the Vendor and Device ID values :)

I tried to get the sleep key to lock my mac, but i think i'll need to tinker with AppleScript to accomplish that one. Just haven't had the time yet.

Here's the script:
