I've forgotten to add that a "driver.version.communication" (or alike)
should be added to track the comm subdriver type and version. I've
intentionaly let the double versioning in the banner for now (just
changing it to "xxx driver %version - core %version%").

I'll also have to make some command names propositions for outlets (ie
outlet.x.load.{off,on}), but there is also the parameter possibility
that hasn't been finished (allowing "load.off {all, outlet.x}"
defaulting to "all")
