Note that on the DBE62 we have the possibility to optionally have a
daughterboard that has a dedicated serial port. For these, having the
DDC work (serial port not set up on DDC pins) would be the preferred
way. Sometimes that's the preferred way for other boards too, to have
nicely working DDC.
So basically it would be nice if setting up the serial port on DDC pins
would be a configurable thing.
