That's fine. If somebody quotes me, I'd like to clarify that one thing
that I want to happen is that the Linux "PnP" code should really make
sense from a completely non-PC-world standpoint too.

So what I'm looking for is more of a "framework for autodetection" where
PnP would strictly be relegated to just be one particular way of finding
out information for the larger framework.

(And think of "larger" not in code-size, but as a "concept" thing)
