It is actually something that I intend to do increasingly. Where we know
things that are special cases, we should extract that data and correctly
report it. We already recognize a few special cases and I am comfortable
adding more of those.

I am asking Jef to be more open to exposing details like this in the new
libdivecomputer API...

So this (and your other patches) has just been pushed.
