Keying the TX using a Remote Headset/mic/Switch in the upcoming v1.4?

Aside from VOX or click-and-hold, what options do you imagine for keying the TX using a PC-connected remote headset/mic or switch in the upcoming v1.4? 

What, if any, manufacturers will offer a "complete" headset solution for Flex 6000 series users who do not want to use VOX or click on the screen to TX during remote operation from a PC? 

Will v1.4 have a provision for such a hand/foot-switch hardware solution?  (or is it already there and I'm too dimwitted to notice the solution in front of me!)  Maybe Flex will be offering a hand/foot switch?  [Now, I'm wondering, does the FlexControl already map one of the buttons to Xmit?]

As I lie dreaming at night of features Santa and his elves (please, let's not forget the elves!) are putting into v1.4, these questions ensued.  I need to stop eating before I go to bed.

SmartSDR v1.4 is not slated to have a hardware method for keying the radio via the remote PC.  You will have to use VOX or click MOX on the GUI.  This capability may be included in a future version of SmartSDR.
