I hope you do find one.

I would not automatically expect one to be readily available - RS485 is half
duplex and can feature timing issues in the driver control lines. If the
devices are on a bus you must have a device address packed in with the
programming data - this can be both rather application specific and rule out
common programming software.

Sorry, I should have been more explicit.

I'm running on a short time frame, so I don't really have time to
write a bootloader and the programmer app for it.

My application can handle the bus logic, then reset into the
bootloader when the bus is cleared for programming.  The modification
I would need to make to the bootloader's code amounts to setting a pin
high before each transmit and low when the transmit is complete - a
very simple modification, I just need the source so I can do it.

As I said, I don't have time to develop the programming app, and using
avrstudio isn't an option.  I'm hoping for a bootloader that supports
the stk500, avr910, or somesuch protocol like that, and could be used
directly with avrdude (or uisp for that matter)

I'd be really surprised if such a project didn't exist.  I've found a
couple of bootloaders already that work with avrstudio.  Anyone have
any good leads?  Is there an open source port of the butterfly
bootloader to gcc?  I believe that works with avrdude.
