    It was made this way to make Russell more open to it. I have since not
    recieved any more comments from him so I figured I could pass it by you
    instead to get more wide spread testing. The long term goal was removing
    the config and having it on all the time.

    Removing it would be preferable by me. All that #ifdef tends to clutter
    up the code. After som initial problem with a buggy card everything has
    worked flawlesly.
