Yeah, that was the idea. Sorry, I should have mentioned that. Basically,
everything that makes an LCDd instance "unique" needs to be configurable
at run-time so it can run more than one instance.

I'm starting to wonder just how much of a rewrite this really needs; if we
just clean up problems in each bit and increment the version number
whenever we do it, I bet v0.5 will end up being very close to my original
"vision" of it anyway.

You folks seem to have quite a good grasp on what direction we should take
LCDproc in ... I'm not gonna argue :)
