I've tried to piece together several comments from across various 6.2 and sendkey threads into an understanding of what happened to break sendkey.

Did the event router go away in 6.2? That is, does /dev/router_client/ no longer exist? Is that why routerplus is now how sendkey would need to be reimplemented?

I've been looking at implementing some event-based scripts after having developed my own IDL parser/library in .NET and want to verify that its the switcher itself that is gone, as opposed to just the event format changing being the cause of sendkey breaking as happened after 4.x came out, or some other thing altogether that I haven't discerned.

Answering my own question, from the routerplus readme:

"the deprecation (v4.x+) and EOL (v6.x+) of the eventswitcher interface made it more difficult for scripts and other add-on programs to observe and react to user and system activity"
