Never mind this message. The driver name is irrelevant for the socket
name. One can query which driver is used from the UPS data structures, so
we can also use 'user-' and 'auto-' as prefixes, to make a distinction
between user- and automatically configured UPS'es. Therefor, I withdraw
this proposal, it has no merit.

Since hot(un)pluggable UPS'es won't have an 'ups.conf' entry, I will make
the option to start a driver without an entry there available again in the
trunk, once the server picks up the drivers to connect to from the
STATEPATH, rather than from 'ups.conf'.

Best regards, Arjen
