I think you misunderstood. The idea is to provide a consistent 
interface. With the current API/V4 you still have the same issues. The 
idea is to support the hardware features with the library, rather than 
in kernel for the frontends.

And having it in user space does really help too. Many things which are 
difficult to be implemented in kernel is not difficult in user space.

This will again need some changes at app level. :-)
So why not do it in a much better way ?
