Wiring a Push-button

So, in the previous discussion here: http://help.sparkbooth.com/discussions/questions/99-trigger-switch, someone was talking about soldering a button to their keyboard. Does anyone have any ideas on how to do this? Is this something I could do just to the space button if I pop its cover off? What kinds of resources did you use to figure this out?

Also, the knowledge base suggest the Griffin PowerMate. Has anyone used this? It seems to have most of the same functions as a mouse with a wheel. Is it hard to program it to not work like a mouse (so that users are unable to move the cursor)? What have your experiences been?

And lastly, has anyone used the software from Breeze Systems (http://www.breezesys.com/PSRemote/pushbtn.htm)? Do you know if it is compatible with the Sparkbooth software?

Have any new ideas come about?
