Hi Graeme,

from a previous answer [0] I got the exact opposite impression, i.e.
that I should configure whatever possible with the CLI and only then do
`ethercat cstruct`. After re-reading, I think I misunderstood what
"pre-configuration" means.

I think you are right though, because there are many APIs with sound
names, particularly the pdo related one.

I will do my homeworks and report back for future reference.

Thank you.
