We currently have a real mess with a 3 kinds of "adiler" subdriver
behaving differently (old agiler not currently in the trunk, agiler
and phoenix). I'm not really sure at the moment that phoenix subdriver
works exactly the same as an old agiler one.

AFAIK there is actually no active maintainer for all these subdrivers.
Personally I am maintaining common parts of megatec_usb and the krauler
subdriver. I don't want to touch "agiler" subdrivers at all because
(a) I don't have an appropriate UPS
(b) I don't know of a developer willing to contribute which has and whom
     I can send patches to (except for Carlos but he was completely
     satisfied with serial interface as far as I remember :) )
(c) I don't have time and will to develop without the real hardware only
     by sending patches to testers.

Maybe I'll overcome the first reason some time :)

IMHO we should resurrect the old agiler subdriver and ask some people
with these UPSes to test all the 3 subdrivers. Then we'll know which
subdriver supports which UPS. And then freeze them until they get a

I'm really busy at the moment with my university degree work and my job
so I just don't have time for this.
