 That explains it, I wondered why the DC ceiling not where red
when I could get the calculated ceiling painted nicely green.

Due to the small screen size it might be wise to be a bit restrictive to
begin with.
That means only displaying things that are reported from the majority of
dive computers.

I have played a bit with displaying other things than the default set,
and most are broken in some way or another. For example the text for the
tank bar
is not aligned vertically with the graphical element.

Once we add option we need to add all liked objects, for the calculated
ceiling that means
we also have to add deco algorithm and GF settings.
