That is exactly what I'm doing, and I have already told you
at least three times. That 'dedicated program' is still _an
application_. And no, it can't be 'a simple script' it is
doing a lot more than you can imagine - including configuring
a lot of external hardware, sometimes directly, sometimes by
talking to daemons on other machines, etc. etc.

It doesn't have to work with any other card. We are relying
on the functionality of very specific external hardware anyway.
Unless you know a replacement for e.g. and RME ADI648, and you
can 'abstract' both this and the ADI648 to the same remote
control API without any loss of functionality.
