Thanks for the respin.  I have one question however:

I never used that option so I'm unsure about this.  Do we ever want to
change this value?  I really would like to only offer options that are
sensible to change.

If it is sensible to have this option, then from what I read in the
documentation, 12 is indeed a good default as it does not seem to depend
on the actual device.  Am I right?

If we agree on how to proceed, I can fix up the patch myself.


European  efforts to impose  state systems in  conquered  territories are the
source of most conflicts underway right now, after the collapse of the formal
colonial system.  Europe's own  favorite sport of  mutual slaughter had to be
called off  in 1945,  when it was  realized  that the  next time the game was
played would be the last.                                     -- Noam Chomsky
