A while back you indicated that you would like to redo the sample skeleton
drivers in share/examples..
I can do that over the net few days if you could give me some
pointers as to good examples of modern code to extract from.
(I have a few days off since my recent brush with a PHM at work)
It'll probaly take a few iterations as I haven't been following
newbus so I'll need to pass teh results back to you for comment
and fixing several times.
