Turns out like 260 of the .unwrap()s were in our unit tests for device protocols (tons of copypasta there).

Down to 156!

Spending a fun sunday trying to remove all .unwrap()s from the library (either by conversion to .expect() with a message explaining why it's valid, or via error handling that should've been there)!
