It's on the list of things to do.  Nobody's gotten to it yet.
It sounds like you may be the person we've been looking for ;)

There is room in the daughterboard EEPROM for storing the parameters.
We can work out a specific location when you're ready.

If you've got the time and inclination, please have a go at the I/Q
compensation.  It would be great to have.  Please post any questions,
