e.g. because plain vdr doesn't know anything about a positioner (or 
other weird things: vdr is good because it's flexible and you can do 
almost everything you want with it).

That may be good for eit(?) scanning, not for attaching receivers: why 
wait 5 seconds when the dish is already positioned and you have a good 
signal? Since I'm using a dxr3 (i.e. transfer mode i.e. a receiver) I 
wouldn't like to wait 5 seconds after each channel change.
