But that means it will be something completely different than the
Atmel JTAG ICE.  And i'm basically losing if i'm using a computer that
doesn't have a USB connector (which is my current AVR development/
ICE/ISP platform, a Toshiba Libretto 70ct).  I can understand the
reasoning for using the parallel port, but personally think an
AVR-plug compatible serial protocol would be better (even if slower).

I don't have an idea about the portability of the Linux libusb API,
e. g. to FreeBSD which is my OS of choice, or to Windows which
probably a lot of people would like to use it on later.

So while freeice certainly looks great, i think there's also a niche
market for an Atmel-compatible JTAG ICE clone as well.
