Btw. I think it might be worth it to put the dive computer info in an
"equipment" XML tree, rather than under "settings" and

So the xml file would look like

    <device model='Suunto Vyper Air' deviceid='d4629110'
nickname='Suunto Vyper Air' serial='a123456789' \>

or something.

Because we may some day want to track other devices too. Maybe not,
but there's no reason to make this all particularly tied to dive
computers per se.
