That's something I wanted to address too (device configuration before
open). The direct show module on Windows used to (in the wx interface)
and maybe does (in the Qt interface) have callbacks to help build the
open dialog depending on what devices were available and what options
this device supported/advertised. I've been thinking about doing the
same for the v4l2 open dialog in the Qt interface. I'll try to start
coding something like that next week. That would solve the issue of
configuration through the GUI. We'd still need the bazillion command
line options, but I doubt we can find a work arround to that.
