This is almost exactly what I was looking for... except that keyboard input only works for the numeric keypad, not the numbers above the letters. This is a bummer for us PowerBook users.

Nice little app. Or whatever this is (doesn't show up in the Dock (thankfully), has no application menu, etc.). "Menubar app"? Anyway, pretty cool. Doesn't seem to use much memory or processor, which is nice.
