yes that seems the easiest way. I think it's enough to just return the
position, like "S1.0W".. With GotoXX patch, the positioning DiSEqC code is
actually just "G" for each satellite, so there is no difference to be found
there! Also the tone/range checks need to be removed from SetFrontend.

This is easy to do as a "hack" but much more tricky to have some clean
solution that would allow old behaviour as well..

The GotoXX patch itself is very clean and easily completely disabled with
the setup switch. While Klaus is listening, perhaps you could consider
including this? GotoXX essentially replaces all Rotor and RotorNG plugins,
and is very easy to setup because it can automatically tune all satellites
without any configuring.

It can be found from: http://patchwork.linuxtv.org/patch/12911/
