Sorry, I can't follow. I can write JS code to create a table, add it as
a childeNode to some div and fill in all of autoconfig output there -
but I'm sure you do not mean to replace aprint_* calls in our drivers
with such code.

So what do you mean? I guess "console" does mean something very different
to you in this context than to me...
