Fairly good price, depending on how many a batch is? 30-or so pieces
could go for $3, but you probably want to look for 25LF080A instead
then to get more room. Maybe there's a 16Mbit version too.

That's not a problem per se, you can always erase and reprogram, but
usually there is a rather high cost for the service. :\
