And now that I think about it, for some of the operations (especially 
enable/disable) I believe that the bridge should be able to decide whether to 
call the next/previous bridge first or to configure its hardware first. I can 
image bridges that need the previous bridge in the chain to provide a valid 
clock before they get started, as well as bridges that need to be started with 
the incoming video signal stopped.
