[Pdmtl] CUI et PD

Hey all,

I recently got PD to talk to the iCubeX bluetooth thingy at my
University (linux), the hard part was making blueZ work well, and then
once I got that done then the whole rfcomm thing worked great.

As I recall [joystick] is either a old (maybe unsupported) object, or an
abstraction based around [hid] anyway...?

Keeping an eye on the CUI thing, while I have you here Dan we have been
talking on the PD list about having a standard way to access all the
FLOSS HW interfaces, so that there could be objects for [analog]
[digital] etc.. and they would work with CUI, Arduino, AID, MultiIO
etc.. It would require a standard API into these devices, at least for
the features that are common accross them (like analog and digital in
and out).
