TL;DRCan we have another radio button when connecting to the roboport with a wire to get the roboport's contents (not the entire network)
What ?Similar to how we can get the contents of a chest, I would like to get how many bots and repair kits are in this roboport.
Why ?I want to use it to build a place with combinators to automatically add robots to the network if there are none available for that type. I can use the existing connection to get if the total number of available logistics or construction bots is less than 50, and start adding whichever type is needed. But I keep running into the roboport being full of the opposite type of bot, since they had the nerve to park there, so it won't automatically add more unless I can add a combinator to add up the bots in the specific roboport and remove enough of whichever is filling it to allow the other type to go in. Small change seems useful to me, but not sure who else would do this. The alternative for now is to have some requester/buffer chests with inserters and the same logic in a few places around the network, rather than have it all be at the bot factory. And it seems like a simpler idea than being able to send a signal to the roboport for the bots to vacate immediately if there is room elsewhere
Edit: It would also be super fantastic to be able to get lists of other items, specifically items being constructed that cannot be fulfilled (like shown in the icon by the copy/paste/etc bar), so you could request them from neighbor networks or trains etc.
