Is there such a thing as a ZIF socket for PLCC chips?

Rumor has it that Ethan Dicks may have mentioned these words:

They're out there...

>Any ideas? Any recommendation on a source for adapters?

Some of the least expensive adapters I've found (including the least
expensive programmers & SMD rework stations I've found) but still by no
means "cheap" would be Xeltek -- Had decent luck with my
refurbed programmer that was <$200 and will do up to 4Mbit [Flash|EP]ROM
devices, as well as PAL/GAL/PEEL/ATMEL etc...

Their PLCC sockets range from $130 -> $185 (I'd seen 'em as high as $325,
so that's a *bargain*... ;-) )
