The iLiad Mobipocket Reader would be even harder, because it's Java-based, and the Reader doesn't have a JVM.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad tidings .
Unless FBReader's internals are really badly designed porting it to use a keyevent based interface should be trivial. And there's no reason a JVM can't be installed on the reader (other than that the reader's CPU is probably to slow to handle a GUI written in an interpreted language)

Personally I prefer to convert content and read it ;-)
