right, I only checked the trunk. looking at a pristine 2.2.2, there is
only agiler + old and krauler
the trunk includes the phoenix sub driver.

Note: just to clarify the situation, since it isn't clear to me (and
possibly others)
in the trunk, the 0x06da:0x0003 is listed with the phoenix_subdriver
agiler_old subdriver
in 2.2.2, it's listed with the agiler_old subdriver

what is the right one and what is the right fix? This is the short run

Also note that we can always extract a patch that only applies to (ie)
the Debian or Ubuntu package, without the need to throw out a new NUT

the next is 2.4, and the roadmap is under refection...
still scheduled for christmas.
