Yeah I suppose but I would like to use the locators for my own
purposes, if we can encode the bus attachment somewhere then the
locator information can be fished out later on by, say, a prtconf like
tool (there I said it :-)
It's probably just me but I thought that a structure would look neater
than #define'd array offsets. I suppose the down side is that there
may be alignment problems & the initialisation of a union is somewhat
problematical in some instances....
