For a long time I believed the API was basically agreed upon
and Manu and IIRC Steve were implementing drivers. Once the
drivers were ready (and thus proved the API works) the whole
thing would've been merged.

But I lost track of the "DVB API update" thread. Maybe
Manu and Steve could fill us in what their conclusion of this
thread was and what the plan is now.
