    Sure, user space can do silly things. Just ask davej. Let's try to
    assume they don't.

    Bad idea... it means user space will have to try to open different files
    and what happens when someone introduces a new unit? Ideally I'd like
    the unit to be part of the payload of the sysfs file. Second to that I
    think having the unit in a separate file is preferable.
