Currently the spec represents buttons as an array of double values, to handle
analog buttons (like the trigger buttons on most modern gamepads). However, I'm
starting to think this might not be sufficient. The Playstation 3 controller,
for example, has pressure-sensitive buttons which provide both a digital
(pressed/not pressed) and an analog (how hard is it being pressed) value. It
seems like it would be unfortunate to lose part of that data.

Should we spec button values to include both a boolean and a double value?
