Well, please add some kind of example and this explanation to the
documentation. I don't care much whether you add it to avrdude.1 or
doc/avrdude.texi, or to both (I'm willing to add the missing half if
you do only one of both) - but without an example, I guess nobody will
be able to figure out how to use it unless they read this example here
in the mailing list.

Never trust an operating system you don't have sources for. ;-)
