As far as I've know, there is no difference in the communication, if its
done over bluetooth or ftdi-usb-serial. In subsurface case its all
transparent. Also, as far as i've know and from previous discussions
with Matthias and Co, hwOS Tec and hwOS Sport should just behave the
same way when trying to configure them, and hwOS Sport just ignores the
bits it doesn't "understand".

The odd child in the bunch is the OSTC4. Its a slightly different
protocol, with config variables meaning slightly different things.

We should probably add the OSTC 2 TR to. There are quite a few config
variables thats new and should to be added to.

I haven't had the time to keep up with all the new interesting things
thats landed in hwos lately.
