Thanks for the list! I wasn't aware of any games that really depend on the
additional buttons on the JagPad, so it's good to have this list ready when
somebody wants to implement this - which shouldn't be too hard to do since
basic support for the joypad is already there, see the Joy_StePadButtons_*
functions in joy.c ... most difficult part is likely to find somebody with
enough spare time to implement it and to figure out a good way to configure
this in the GUI ... patches are certainly welcome!
