A bigger limitation than packaging for DoC has been M-systems. They have 
an attitude about open source that is hard to fathom and seems to change 
weekly, which makes it difficult to commit to using their parts -- if you 
commit, you don't know if they will make the next part open or not. 

I think you're much better off with an adapter for compact flash. That's 
an open, widely used standard which has worked well for us.
