with an example of 'beyond that' being John Utz's code.

Be it C, Java, C#, Javascript, Ada or any languages that use strong types.

I dont do it in shell script tho:

# Let any boot observers know what devices we found

echo "Type MotherBoard:  ($TYPEMBD)"
echo "Type Soundcard:    ($TYPESND)"
echo "Type Ethenet:      ($TYPEETH)"
echo "Type Modem:        ($TYPEMDM)"

anyway, we can argue about it again after i get a checkpatch compliant  
patch to submit....
