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

Correct. There is the exact same code on our (OSTC) side.

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".

Also correct. We try to make these two branches as compatible as possible. All settings not included in the hwOS Sport are ignored from the hwOS Sport.

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

The OSTC4 will be fully open-source very soon, as well (We're just cleaning up the code so it's a bit more understandable). So I hope to make the OSTC4 configuration-wise as compatible as possible then. Firmware update is and will be different, though.

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

Beside the firmware update (the OSTC 2 TR has a software-defined radio receiver which can be updated additionally to the normal firmware) the OSTC 2 TR is either an hwOS TEC or hwOS Sport OSTC. Nothing special for you to do.
