Normalise keyboard events for all browsers

Now then lads, congratulations on a top quality product.
I notice that the event object is normalised in jQuery across all browsers. That's lovely.
In the same way, might we not have normalised event names? I mean, Opera is notoriously dodgy in its onkeydown / onkeypress implementation (specifically it doesn't like the onkeydown event to be cancelled forcong one to use onkeypress which then borks in the other browsers so you have to do an event name switch and etc etc) but I assumed that the cross browser wonderfulness of jQuery would iron that out and let me use the correct / same event name as the other browsers.
Seems not to be the case though. Any thoughts about implementing this? (I know, I know, it's Opera's silly fault really...)
