I may be wrong, but I believe there is a world of differnce between keyboard monitors that a system admin puts in place on a network, or on machines in a network, to capture login attempts and the like, and the keyboard logging done in the Scarfo case.  The latter is much more likely to be something like Tempest, a listening in from the outside rather than an internal device placed on the pc.

But who knows..
