Restricting Device Setup with Multiple Capabilities

Just as a UX thing,

input "lights", "capability.switch", title: "Which Lights?", multiple: true, required: false

Excellent question – and an excellent “feature request”! :heart_eyes:

From the initial list of Devices, iterate through and do some Groovy list filtering based on:
