Thanks for the suggestion - and the reviews!

I was tempted to just remove the debugging.
If we require debugging, then this could be added in the backlight core,
thus everyone would benefit from it.

The solution above avoid any direct use of backlight_properties
which I consider a layer violation outside the backlight core.
(We cannot avoid it today with the current interface - but we can
minimize it).

Sam
