Well, I'm going to do it anyways for a few reasons:

  - The hardware is available and the high level interface is now out.
  - I've got the jtagice at home and work.
  - avarice is incomplete (my version is pretty patched up)
  - haven't heard from Scott Finneran (avarice author) in a while so it
    may have gone stale.
  - it's possible to have many avr specific targets in gdb
  - I'm crazy and like to beat my head on gdb internals. 8-0

You could use the existing gdb serial protocol directly, but will it fit
in the mega8? Seems like a lot of overhead.

I agree. Discuss away. ;-)
