	There's XML to specify menus and themes. That gets snarfed directly by C++ 
code. HL scripting is unlikely in anything core (too many wasted cycles when 
CPU time is important).

	Every time I look at the documentation, I'm amazed at how up to date it is. 
Robert Kulagowski has done an excellent job with what is usually a thankless 

	Database of workable hardware would be nice, but a b*tch to manage as it 
depends on user input and you only usually here about failures (not 
successes). I think there's one started somewhere (?).
