    Yep, ok - I'm undecided about the new code for SKAS3, but it may make sense
    (i.e. no opinion).

    Instead, I have another question: is there a proper reason for using the
    processor format for storing the info and translating it back to (struct
    user_desc)? I am planning to avoid this double translation because I don't
    like it. Any opinion?
    Inform me of my mistakes, so I can keep imitating Homer Simpson's "Doh!".
