Brian Dean's programmer software avrprog has been renamed
AVR Downloader / UploaDEr (avrdude)
He has kindly made it open source. See:

It has now been ported to Linux and Windows (using cygwin). This is 
the software that will be included in WinAVR. 

The main advantage of avrdude over uisp is extensibility. avrdude has 
the capability to allow a user to specify a custom programmer and 
specify a new AVR part if needed.

As to supporting the AVR ISP programmer: avrdude can talk to an 
STK500. IIRC the AVR ISP programmer uses the same protocol as the 
STK500 so, in theory, yes. I don't know if this has been tested yet.

I had tried to build 2 different versions of uisp under cygwin and 
mingw with no success. avrdude is now building under cygwin but links 
to 3 cygwin dlls. If you want to discuss ways of cutting this down 
and possibly getting it to build under mingw I would be very 
interested. We can continue this under the avrdude-dev list.
