So, plan: I would like to add a command that tells us
   - it's open source firmware
   - what additional capabilities the firmware has
This has to be a command like the debug commands that we can send from
the firmware unilaterally. Easy to do.

What I would then like to add is at least proper tx status reporting. I
would also like to get rid of the key limitation, if possible.
