I would rather not see reverting to a previous version of the driver and
loose functionality of the driver. However functionality for the basics
with at least the G200 and also the reported G400 is a large problem.
This problem needs addressed as well. Not all have the newer chipsets
which will benefit from the enhancements added to the driver.

This is not a rant, just a view.
