Direct API call via Button Mapper app

I don't know if this is common knowledge but, if not, it might be useful to anyone who uses the buttonmapper app on android clients.

I have discovered that using the advanced mode in buttonmapper to map a button to do an HTTP POST to localhost you can get it to call any channels api command.

Eg I have the Search button on my IR remote mapped to F9 in my Flirc and then I've mapped F9 in buttonmapper to call

It works well and means any command is available to a remote, not just those that have an adb keycode associated with them. Eg I have another button mapped to skip/240 in the api to ad skip in programs where comskip didn't work well or hasn't run yet etc.
