Hey sharkcow,

great to see that you are pushing the VW e-Up to the next level :-)

I completely agree that merging the T26A and OBD code is finally the
way to go. 

For now we still need a "simple" way to connect the hardware to the
comfort can and the OBD port simultanously.

I took a quick look at your index.rst and would like to suggest to
document how you connect your OVMS to T26A and OBD. Perhaps with a
picture or two?

Also nice to read you started with a "Schneider". My starting point was
a "Sinclair ZX81". Z80 assembler rulez :-)
