The ToH (Table of Hardware) lists devices which are supported by OpenWrt
(and quite some that are not supported; remainders of old times).
It comes in different views, showing different columns, paying respect to
limited horizontal screen space.

- All views: https://lede-project.org/toh/views/start
- View for selecting a new device to be bought, filtered for supported
devices which have >4MB flash + >32MB RAM ->
- View for downloading firmware:

Just having a "file that people fill" seems to go in the direction of having
a static table. That's not what we want. Filtering for certain data is a
mandatory feature.

This whole ToH thing is worth a discussion on its own.
