Don't just sit around waiting for one of us to do it.  If you know what 
you'd like changed, then please feel free to send a patch in to the 
list.  It looks like the flexcop board is the only board that you can do 
this with, that uses lgdt330x driver... Between Mac (original lgdt330x 
author) and I , we only have the cx88 and bttv based boards that use 
lgdt330x frontends.
