Yes it does, however I didn't want to make the initial submission
feature creepy. So I would like this to go in as is, then refactor
drivers to get help from the framework later on, if we see that
it is needed. (So the solution would evolve gradually rather
than being too much designed-in from the beginning.)

Do you think the driver support functions are needed from start?
I could do it I think...
