Hmm, yes, I think that would work. It would remove the need for the
database, but the code would be slightly more complex as we'd need to
travel through the graph, not just the nodes that are directly connected
to omapdss. I need to try this approach also.


Ps. Sorry for misspelling your name, twice. If I recall right, I even
checked if your name is written with an 'a' or an 'e', but somehow still
managed to get it wrong.
