to touch different parts of the system. "/0/0/0" makes me feel
sad just because either you have to keep all those numbers in mind (like you
or have documentation available (and know where it is, e.g. sources
of Xen or kernel).
I have a strong feeling that if you can change configuration without
knowing what index stands for it is always better and fail-safer then
just having numbers...
Not sure I follow that.

How would you change configuration without knowing the index?

if one looks at
most probably he/she will understand this w/o any documentation,
because it is human readable

if one looks at
well, I believe you can almost do nothing w/o looking at the documentation
I can see the beaty of it.

I can also see the beaty of the old implied mechanism
from a maintaince perspective.

I am maintainer so I am leaning towards the second one
as having less "special" cases.

Sorry, I feel like I am mutilating your baby with this
old boring view of "maintaince" and "conform to the old
standard" :-(

np, so I will use ".../0/0/0/..." pattern here and in
displif as well. I will update "Addressing" section
so it is documented
OK, so I will ignore v16 as of right now it has the old format.
Please at your convience post v16.1 (or v17) with this change.
Thank you
