Ah. So not _really_ a lcd2usb, but a descendant of it.

OK. Between keypad differences and the digital contrast, perhaps
it's a good idea to differentiate between your interface and the
original lcd2usb at the LCDd/LCDd.conf level? I have one of the older
units and I'd rather it not break because a newer nearly-compatible
interface comes out.

Cool. What's there looks pretty simple.

I am pretty much 100% UNIX these days (Linux, Solaris, MacOS), so a
simulator for Windows is uninteresting to me.

Sure. Feel free to send me a couple of pictures off-list.
