PC-keyboard but using original C64/C128/CBM-keyboard as base

Hallo allemaal,

I have an empty 8296D and a friend of mine got the idea to build a PC in it
and to run an emulator on it. His idea was to put a PC-keyboard in the
original case. My idea was to remove the original keyfield and solder the C=
to it. Lots of soldering but should work IMHO. Still some small things to
solve left but not difficult ones.

Then I got this idea: using the original keyboard and to program a
micro-controller so it behaves like a PC-keyboard: press 'a' and it sends
the code for 'a', press shift-R/L_cursor and it sends the code for
left_cursor, etc., etc., etc.

Question : has anybody done such or an equivalent project or knows of
someone who did it?

Many thanks in advance!
