I merely thought about a ZIF or alike socket to hook up the AVR in the
lab, and then have a standard programmer talk to it.  I have no idea
about what case option you are talking here, but I can't imagine you'd
have to fork out several kUSD for such a thing.  I think they *are*
expensive when it comes to more exotic cases, but probably still in a
range with three digits (IOW, about the costs of one engineer per day
or the like).

If you decide to hack avrdude for that, then I'm only willing to
accept that as a patch for the official tree if it is generic enough
so every user could configure the actual pre-init sequence in their rc

Never trust an operating system you don't have sources for. ;-)
