This seems to have gotten rather stalled, I think because of two
factors, one is that noone has clear maintainer responsibility for
blessing the creation of new PV protocols and partly because people are
naturally a bit cautious about creating new ABIs, which must be
maintained long term, for types of device with which they are not really

I've added Lars because perhaps there is some process we can put in
place which helps alleviate these issues. (I don't know what, but
perhaps a "staging area" for new protocols which isn't ABI stable along
with some sort of graduation process, or perhaps some sort of governance
thing which would make it clear who has to say yes to something like
this, so we can beat them with sticks until they say something).

I've also CC-d a bunch of people who commented on previous rounds in
case any of them feel neither of the factors I mentioned apply to them
and want to say Acked/Reviewed-by ;-)
