That looks absolutely perfect for the job... unfortunately, it still
seems to be in the beta-test stage (the marketing is mostly oriented
toward developers), and takes about 4 weeks to ship. :((( Plus, the
whole thing with the JTAG interface is rather confusing: is it actually
required to get the thing running, or is it just a developer toy/tool? I
really do wish that it was easily available, though: the "server" model
seems to be precisely what I need, in a tiny wall-wart package, at a
good price. Darn it.
