The entire idea of discussing my circuit here was to get some ideas
for improvements, *and* to make it clear that this was entirely an
"open" hardware design and a "non-secret" programming interface.

The circuit is hardly original enough for me to claim it to be my
idea, especially as other manufacturers have been making proprietary
interfaces that do the same thing for at least a decade. I wanted
to make the design public so that it will last for longer than your
typical PC-clone piece of hardware.
