How about the *CODEC* hardware?

Only multi-write at this point but we probably should consider redoing
bulk writes to use it as well.

Well, I don't think any buses that understand registers have implemented
it yet but there's nothing fundamental that means that a bus couldn't
usefully do something with multi-write. The current users all use raw
buses that don't know anything about registers or values.
