AFAIR at one point you deliberately decided to expose only 8 levels to
the user - while the hardware was capable of more levels (I think it was
something about some user land tool expecting something like that).
But I may be utterly wrong.

I'd love to have more fine grained control on my NC10 as well.

Thanks for the work so far
