Well I know that Doug was a bit worried over HD-Driver as he worried
that Uwe was optimizing it a bit to much. It's a very importat part in the
system and can't fail. I better have a slower driver than a super charged
driver that lose data from time to time.

Maybe it's time we write our own HD driver our self? :-)

Is there any source code for such thing that could be used to base it on?

Maybe it could be part of the Fenix project.
