Roost keyboard

Tweaking the Sweep v2.1, forrestbaer came up with the wireless Roost keyboard.
Published December 17, 2021

Based off the Sweep v2.1, added 2mm or so horizontal space, added another set of keys and slots for a fat power switch. Moved battery connectors to the board, moved reset switch so it's easier to get to without being in the way. Larger holes are for mounting these: Mouser part: 575-7305015154727100 for pluggable switches – forrestbaer.
