Oh, hmm, interesting. I have now changed my code to make use of this,
but I can't say it's pretty, because I basically have to search linearly
for the highest capability supported if that's what I want to know.

So, I guess this solves the problem for now, but I'd still like to see a
proper API for this.

Anyway, thanks for the pointer,

Lennart
