Sure, that would be an ideal. I've also heard that AVR Studio 
supports the UBROF format better than COFF, with UBROF being the 
preferred format from IAR.

Probably the best ideal would be a complete, open IDE on Windows 
which would include easy hooks to deploy compiler, debugger, 
simulator, whatever. I have some ideas for the open IDE, but I also 
know nothing about GDB for Windows. If this could get going, it could 
then be a replacement for AVR Studio without elfcoff.

I also do know that ideas are nothing but vaporware and I'm slammed 
for time at work.
