Again, use HAL. It is quite elegant, and Just Works(tm). Plus, as its ported to new OSs or gets support for new devices, they will also just work. 'Bout as clean and simple as it gets. You can resort to polling for "legacy" systems that don't have HAL.

HAL seems to be what I'm looking for, but I Googled, and wasn't able to turn up much documentation about how to program to take advantage of it. Do you have any good links to tutorials/examples?
