    Nope. Just an observation on the "forest" (vs individual "trees").

    Yes - and /sys is better organized (hierarchial in general).
    But it's getting harder to find stuff because there is so much now.

    Willy has objected and I'm waiting to hear if he's ok with limiting
    this to a DEBUG compile time flag.
