Yes, but you have to make "normal" be no bit set to be compatible with
everything already out there.

Thinking about this some more, shouldn't the new modes just be
implied? A client is going to require one of these modes or it won't
work right.

Also complementary mode could be accomplished with a single pwm output
and a board level inverter, right? How would that be handled when the
PWM driver doesn't support that mode?
