    I agree. I'll repost this one in some days.

    But this should not be important enough to not get this removed.
    It's hard to re-implement the exact behaviour (which can be handy for
    specific problems, I agree).
    watch -n1 ec_access -r
    you can have a close look at specific registers and see them changing.
    ec_access -r -s time(s)
    Reads the table once and again after "time" seconds with stars
    where modifications happened. Then someone can plug AC or hit a button
    and look at the diff in EC registers afterwards.
    This should be sufficient?
    Better ideas?
