I especially note the phrase "supposed to" !!

No, it's a great idea. And one that has been heavily hyped since the 
of 4.0.  Again, I note "supposed to". They haven't outsourced anything, as
the problem is that it's completely undocumented, and therefore utter useless.

Once, I was so eager to do this, but after waiting almost a year for Atmel to 
release the promised documentation, I've totally lost interest.
