I would say that it would be good to open a Blueprint for this and push 
the code up for review.  Even if you don't have CI ready yet you can 
post results of a driver cert test [1] and we can start reviewing the 
code while you work on finishing up the process of getting your CI running.

Look forward to seeing you code.
