The S2API is changing rapidly. Over the last few days the API has been 
refined and the message are being changed / finalized. It's actually 
close to to it's final shape after last nights patches. I probably still 
have a few bugs too! :)

Igor is doing a great job with szap-2 but he's also not quite up to date 
with the current tree, the interfaces on szap-s2 will not match the 
current s2api tree). Let's make sure Igor has caught up with last nights 
changes before you try satellite tuning again.

Recap: The latest version of tune.c (currently 0.0.5 at 
steventoth.net/linux/s2) is the most up to date and contains example 
code for how to tune the API. Igor is taking this code and patching the 
changes into szap-s2 on a regular basis.

As today progresses I'll be collecting feedback on todays patches, if we 
have new bugs then expect more patches and fixes this evening.

Thanks for helping test Gregoire!
