well i looked into this this even... and it seems i will need ALOT
of nails to nail this jelly to the tree... it seems almost all old
world machines have unique gestalt id's which is fine but all
new world machines use the SAME gestalt ID (406) and they need to
be differentiated in some other way... i am still looking into this
and i do think it is possible tho... but this is the list i have made
with info from the list and web... if there are errors or corrections
i would appreciate any input...
