I think trying to massage various mysterious and unknown demod 
statistics into something that we can barely understand, in order to get 
them exposed in either a single unit of measure, or multiple units of 
measure, isn't a credible solution.

We should go back and find the correct SNR mechanism for each demod. 
Then review and agree on an internal kernel spec, and re-engineer the 
demods to meet the spec.

Devin has started the ball rolling nicely, to allow this to happen.
