Excellent; goodluck!

We need to dig up some old hat's in this arena. See if we can find a
lead on better in-socket options. The adapters for in socket programming
are rare and expensive I think (not lots of demand for that kind of
thing). For some chips, that's just going to be the only way things can
go of course.

Anyone care to estimate the percentage of socketed vs. non-socketed
BIOS's in the world's x86 machines shipped since 1990? since 2000?
