           Summary: RS232 and USB should be included. Right now we cannot
                    deoploy software as a web app that needs to interface
                    with locally installed hardware. For example I just
                    built an application for an industry that requires
                    hardware interaction. I also had to write a

Comment:
RS232 and USB should be included. Right now we cannot deoploy software as a
web app that needs to interface with locally installed hardware. For example I
just built an application for an industry that requires hardware interaction.
I also had to write a locally installed proxy that relayed information sent to
a tcp port to a hardware device connected to a serial port. If the device tag
was in place this could have been a completely web based application.
