On our products, SLOT_LABELS are dependent on the currently selected PERSONALITY.

I have no issue with a new command to SET: SLOT_LABEL_USERTEXT.

It should take as arguments both the slot offset AND the personality that the text was to apply to.

I would prefer that the usertext was returned in response to an ordinary GET:SLOT_LABEL if it had been set, but if not, a default text was returned, as you would get with the existing GET:SLOT_LABEL PID

I can see the application on our general purpose relay drivers : we provide default text as Output1,Output2 etc, but once the card is applied to a specific task, the user would like to see Relay1, Fan2, Lamp3 etc.

Eric - I would prefer NOT to require the use of sub-devices in order to allow this feature.
