If flashrom is going to make a serious effort to branch out into 
supporting external programmers then I think its time to refactor the 
core code into libflashrom and provide separate UI's for the different 

The workflow of flashrom to flash coreboot ont the chip on your 
motherboard is different from the workflow/feature needs of a general 
purpose external programmer.

An attempt to find a single UI that works for both is going to result in 
one that only does a half-ass job at either one.
