  Uh, oh! Not good. I have a Hitachi HDG-2436 table which is reputed (in the
source code) to be supported). I am willing to test your code for you. I
bought the digitizer (used, of course) specifically for use with GRASS. When
you think you have a working version, send it to me (off-list) and I'll hook
up the digitizer and run some tests.

  This will also force me to learn how to initialize the board and use it
within GRASS. Ergo, mutual benefit.
