Looking at the code, it's pretty trivial what each backend would do --
but I think we need different backends for each make, e.g.


In that way the addons can be kept really small with no configuration --
just launched per vid/pid via a fdi file.
We would probably need to merge in the button capability like we do with
the keyboard addon as we don't know the button types until they are

Probably worth contacting the original author, asking for his help.
