I was talking about the multiproto method of reporting the cards
capabilities, not the entire api.  There's no need to go on about the
history of multiproto & s2api so please don't turn this thread into
"one of those".  There's one big problem that needs to be addressed
and the less people get OT, the faster it might be resolved.

You don't think an api's ability to correctly report a cards
capabilities is a big deal?  It's a very basic & fundamental feature!!
 I guess we will have to agree to disagree.  ;)
