still in early stage. The full integration will happen with 2.6, and the
device collection propagation...

I'm not sure to fully understand your needs there, but since you will
somehow be your only consumer (or let's rephrase this with "it's not for a
large public market"), chances are that your driver and changes to NUT will
be only available on your side (remember the GPL terms there).
So go ahead and do what you want here...
What has been done for the 3phases support in NUT might help you (check
about the outlet.0 (representing the whole device for a PDU, or all the
outlets), this has just been renamed to "outlet". So that would be
Others may have some more ideas.
