I'll defer to Peter, Stuart and Paul on the v2 API framework.  IMO,
though, the v1 API is severely lacking when it comes to tuners and
need not be kept as is in v2.

As for input groups, I don't see any reason to allow direct access to
the table per se through the API.  Instead, I think there should
probably only be services like AddCaptureCardToGroup and
RemoveCaptureCardFromGroup where the group is identified by name only.
