Yes, sorta knew about that from my previous investigations :-)

Funny you should say that, this was exactly what I was thinking during
my walk from the train to work. The only proviso I would have is to
make the number of int's in dv_loc be the same as the number of
entries in locname, this way the tool surfing the structures does not
need to know what locators are relevant to the device - something that
is very device specific.
