SubjectIEEE 1284 development
Hi all!

I have started doing some work for implementing IEEE 1284 and 1284.3
in Linux, i.e. a protocol for handling (generic) two-way communication
via the parallel port (especially nice for EPP and ECP capable ports).

This will quite possibly have some influence on the parallel port
Ethernet drivers (de600, de620, atp) as well as PLIP, lp and paride.
The "plug-and-play" people might also be interested...

I plan to have an alpha version available for other people to see
sometime before Christmas.

If anyone else has already done something along these lines, PLEASE
tell me about it, so that I don't re-invent this particular wheel...
