What I meant was exactly what you point out here.  Number one, it would
require modifications to comm.c and other places, right?  Secondly, if we do
not have proper auto-detection, I consider it a bad implementation layered
over an already existing system.  The menus in OasisOLC work, and they're
pretty intuitive.

So what I am saying is: If we cannot *reliably* provide these things with
the patch, I don't think we should even go there.
