Does the Eaton merger/cooperation mentioned in the Christmas mail mean
that you/we(the NUT team) will get the necessary information about
older (Eaton) Powerware equipment and protocol too? In that case my
suggested protocol forensics might be a waste of time (even if I might
personally learn a thing or two in the process).

OK, then let it be noted that my Exide NetUPS SE works just fine with
the upscode2 driver, as far as I can see. I have not actually pulled
the plug on the UPS, letting NUT shut down the system, since I am
quite happy just knowing that my UPS will keep my server running
during the power failures I get here a few times a year.

Me too.

It has been a while since I coded in C, but I think I could do it if I
could find the time. Modifying existing source should be easier than
trying to write a new driver from scratch.
