Ah, sorry, I completely overlooked that one. Thanks for the reminder.

Well, first from Olimex came the ARM-USB-OCD (PID 3), then came the 
ARM-USB-TINY (PID 4), so that's our start. But then when the H versions 
came along, Olimex curiously "released" the OCD-H (PID 2B) after the 
TINY-H (PID 2A). It only felt more natural to me to have both the H and 
non H versions listed in the same order in the source, but if you want 
to reorganize them around as you see fit, just go ahead.

Non native speaker either, but I think (feel) "any of" is better applied 
to very short lists, whereas "one of" is better applied to long ones, 
and our list has grown long. As the matter above, just a matter of 
individual perception.

Considering that I have just found out that there also exists HL and HQ 
versions of the above chips, I think it's safer to go without the suffix 
there, so I amended the man page.

Here you go. Signed-off-by: Pete Batard <pbatard at gmail.com>
