Nice. Maybe we can reinterpret the acronym as "System Communication
Abstraction Layer". I'd be fine with renaming it to something else as
well, I just didn't find a better name for it yet.
I think a good approach would be to add a dlopen plugin API to the json
plugin itself, so you can use json files to parameterize access to
sensors and other devices.
Event handling could also be scripted through .json files using json_script.
