If the .ucl file were placed in its own folder - by itself - and given a
suitable sound clip, you could use existing talkbox features to identify
it. The first flash operation would still require help, but then all
updates could be performed with only audible cues. We'll have to give
Linus, Joerg, and the crew a while to think about it, but I'm sure
they'll come up with some solution that'll work fine for everybody.
