Well, after thinking about it little bit more, partial reads are always
inconsistent so this wouldn't add a new problem.

Anyway I still stand by my position that this sounds over-engineered and
a simple 0/1 resp. on/off interface would be both simpler and safer. If
anybody wants an auto mode it can be added later (as a value 2 resp.
auto).
