Remapping the spacebar key in PDF mode to "Next Page"

I just had a thought about trying to somehow map the spacebar key to the "Next Page" function, when there's a PDF open in Kindle 2 (and it's in landscape mode).

This way it would be way easier to advance to the next page without awkward holding of the Kindle.

Do you think this could work?

Write a booklet and AWTHook to hijack the key press event, and send 'NEXT_PAGE' to the corresponding dev. This should work.

Has anyone actually tried this remapping? The technique is over my head, but I'd love to be able to do this on my kindle.
