Cityk, thanks for the info!

Manu, I can understand your argument that there should not be something
integrated that is based on guesswork, but I think it is not that bad.

The basic parameters needed for "tuning" or querying the status should
be easy to define - wether a specific "frontend" supports all these or
not would have to be queried via capabilities anyways, IMHO.
