At present no idea what is coming - they are being sent by a factory
interested in having their stuff deployed on allwinner Linux computers.

(As as aside, it would be good to out the "hellishly-complex" algorithms
with an open sourced controller project. Everyone can benefit including
those lumbered with hellish-complex algorithm design.)
