Libkeybinder is no longer maintained

Libkeybinder is no longer maintained and should be avoided in new code. Especially, it causes systematic memory leaks on some hardware configurations. With volumed I've had a lot of reports of the daemon leaking memory which I couldn't reproduce for years. When I finally got hold of a user who could test this issue, we figured that keybinder leaks memory every time that user switched keyboard layouts.
Currently: the PA plugin uses libkeybinder which is susceptible to hard-to-reproduce, unfixable memory leaks
Expected: the PA plugin uses a reliable and maintained keyboard backend. Xfce has its own backend in libxfce4util as far as I recall.
