This would make the key mapping a lot more powerful. Missing this feature.

It is possible to map a key to run a python script in Kodi, and then have the script check for various conditions. It depends on what the final goal is.

You can make easy links to the Kodi Wiki Manual using double brackets around common Kodi words: [[debug log]] = debug log (wiki), [[Video library]] = Video library (wiki), [[SMB]] = SMB (wiki) , [[userdata]] = userdata (wiki), etc
