I really like the idea, and this is a possible future work; but now we can't. 

We have to suppose that the current driver work (they stopped to work because
it was changed the i2c api) and because I can't test a change on
all the apple hardware (powermac, apple laptop...), I am allowed to make only 
very small changes.

My (our) first goal is to bring to life *this* driver.

I repeat I am fully convinced that re-using the "official" i2c drive/client
is the "right thing to do" (tm). But due to the lacking of the hardware where it
is possible to test this module, we need to be very conservative.
