These aren't the only options.

No, and that's my HVR4000 code you're talking about (and the good work 
of Darron Broad, which was then picked up by Igor). The driver is 
marginalized, it's not abandoned.

The HVR4000 situation is under review, the wheels are slowly turning.... 
just not fast enough for many of you - I guess.
