In that case.... how do you propose gathering this list? The ultimate goal
of course is better and more automated hardware detection; it matters much
less how we do it than that we *can* do it. It just seems that if someone
has already done the detection for us, we should use the info. Of course, if
we can develop a better strategy, that'd be nice too......

does Windows also detect hardware by identifying PCI/PnP ids? can we get our
hands on a list of ids somewhere?
