Sir:

May I politely suggest that you include a text header or footer in your
messages with some identifying information, like the one above?  This is a
common practice in email, and is useful not only for guarding against the
notorious unreliability of email, but also of human beings and events in
general.

If you make multiple device descriptions with different baud rates, you
should be able to dynamically change them by shoving new names into the a
device-name control pin on your I/O objects.

Unfortunately, this causes a memory drain right now and won't be fixed right
away.
