There is configurable averaging built into that ts driver before
yesterday, I just extended it a bit.  Driver-based filtering serves a
useful purpose, it reduces the datarate into the input device by a
factor of 32 or 64 or whatever you set it at.  So this and tslib are not
the same deal.  Tslib NEVER got raw samples.

As for getting frowned upon, my dear Andrzej I get frowned upon if I get
up in the morning.  I might as well do something effective and maintain
it myself and get frowned upon than do nothing.  Besides, I can't use
