for sure, a generic API would need to use the device name. Internally it
can translate to whatever the local hardware control API uses.

enumerating the radios is useful, yes, but having a function to set the
afh_map or some other setting? I think that this is only required by the
administrator program (hccontrol in your case) so why does it need to be
in a shared library?
In a way, its similar for the string functions. What program needs to be
able to print the features list? Only a shell based admin tool in
reality, even a graphical program might want to provide such a feature
list in a different format anyway..
