Thanks. I would really like to see it being approved/merged soon 
(together with an ack on the third proposal for exposing all the card's 
ports) as I'm somewhat blocking on that to get the UI work started.

For the profile switch stuff in general, I wonder how much of these 
discussions are really relevant now - once the priority list 
infrastructure is in place (and as I understand it Colin is keen to get 
started when he finds some time to do it), we might have more 
opportunities to work with these things.
