Hi there :-)

About that sync_token stuff:
Can't you dig up that info from our Email conversations? If I remember 
correctly this would be the third time I'd have to explain this?
If not, I could try again: but I'd first have to take a look again. 
Things I don't use for a longer period of time tend to go into the 
'background' in my head :-)

I think your'e right: Also since few drivers (max) support this 
feature. My drivers do not, but Thomas' driver might. No support yet 
BTW because I don't have the full (hardware related) info I need for 

If I'd need to write it again, I guess it would be a doc somehow, no 
Email (I really don't want to do it a fourth time :). I really don't 
want to spend time on learning some specific documentation format 
though. I'd _much_ rather keep spending my time on improving and 
extending those drivers I work on for instance. There's still much 
(interesting stuff for me) left todo 8-)

BTW: Cool to see so much happening (on this list) nowadays! Can't wait 
to start doing my dev. stuff using Haiku itself ;-)
