If you want to get your patches into the current code please make patches
only to the v0.5 branch (aka HEAD). There is not supposed to be
development in 0.4 anymore.

Most things in there work about the same anyway. Read the documents for
the info on writing drivers and check out how some simple drivers do
things (like text or curses drivers)

Brightness goes from 0 to 1000 in v0.5 and there's a separate get and set

But they do function both? That is promising. Maybe it does not yet do
incremental updating to reduce the load on the port. Can anyone tell if
this has been implemented in the v0.5 CFontz driver ?

Erm, well it is like this and it has never been changed... How do you
mean "intended" ;)
