Yes, that would be good.  Need some release manager to do this, I

This will be hard to maintain, unless someone write a script to
extract discover 1 format data from the discover 2 XML files.  If I
had time, I would do it myself, because I believe it is an important
feature to have in discover 2.

This is the original plan, but it got stuck because of some problems
with discover version 2 and the libdiscover-dev blocking discover1
from entering testing.  It would be nice if some release manager could
push both discover and discover1 into testing, so we could update
hw-detect to install discover1 when using discover1-udeb, and discover
when using discover-udeb.
