With Microchip/Atmel driver, we mainly (only) use the "Unknown" type of 
connector because our hardware simply uses RGB wires in parallel.

Should we move to another connector type (maybe now that it's created 
and it was not, back when we chose the "Unknown" one)?

What would be the consequences if we move (silently?) to another type 
and particularly on the command line argument like the ones we currently 
use: "Unknown-1:800x480-16"?

Thanks for your insight on this. Best regards,
