Slowly but surely, yes. Although perhaps just slowly. I've got part
of it written, but I haven't had any time the last month or so due
to my real job. I will probably have more time to finish up the
new ADB subsystem later this month.

I definitely agree on getting rid of most of the reasons for
/dev/adb, but I'm not sure what all people use through it. I know
the trackpad tool uses it, but I'm not sure of anything else.
Does the sleep stuff use /dev/adb or /dev/pmu?
