As for the custom devices -- I'm not sure whether it makes sense to plug
in new device types in the runtime. Adding them to the codebase at
compile time is relatively easy.
As for "starting/stopping devices and running them in threads" -- yes,
it would be great to have that. Ultimately I would like to have devices
running in I/O threads (many devices per thread) etc.
