Yes, i know, and that would certainly be a nice solution for some
prototypes.  OTOH, i hesitate to make this the official policy, say
someone wants to produce 100 PCBs for it, and each of the hundred
potential customers will have to request their own samples...

Board space would not be much of a concern for me (it's small anyway),
and the bidirectional functionality is useless for the JTAG interface
(even sRST which is a bidirectional line needs two separate level
shifters).  I thought about using two unidirectional chips, one for
the signals going from ICE to target, one for the opposite direction.
