OK, this has been added to the NG branch, current binaries are at the link 
below. They should only show supported devices on your system. Tested 
here with a few combinations and it seems to do the right thing. I no longer
am offered IRDA computers on my Mac, for example.

As with everything in the NG branch, testing and reports of success or
failure would be very welcome. The more reports for different dive computers
we can get, the better. So if you have a Cobalt or older style serial dive computer
or anything else that hasn't been reported, yet, please try the binaries at <>

It seems that right now BT rfcomm downloads are broken. Nonetheless, I'd
love to get more testing of this to understand if it's broken for everyone, on
all OSs.

Also, configuring dive computers is likely broken. Hopefully Anton can take
a look.

Thanks for everyone's help!
