Well, the rewrite of LCDproc (v0.5-to-be) should make drivers a bit
easier to implement. Although honestly there's probably not much
stopping someone from building a driver for v0.4-pre9.

The other question is whether there's any LCDs that can attach to a USB
hub or a PS/2 connection... I haven't heard of any of these, but I
probably missed something :)
