1. Update to -current.
2. Write the driver (or get someone else to)
3. Send the driver to the core team (maybe with send-pr?)
4. Now you can use the driver just like any other :^)
At the moment, only Multi-Face III serial is supported (other than
internal, of course), and I'm not sure that's been integrated into -current yet.
