Hmm.. so in these ways my original patch was mostly correct? Available 
connectors are listed among debug information when run in verbose mode 
but unless "kms-connector" parameter is given first connected is chosen 
which most often is correct behavior.

Those two patches which were not committed I'll resubmit for another 
round. I need to fix at least one "D'oh!" type issue included in them.
