there are SPI  sockets out there in industry, but less common & probably 
pricey. plcc32 is much more commonplace.

but then soldering 8 contacts might seem less risky to do manually 
compared with 32 contacts.  

the 1.0 pcb layout has solder pads for plcc as well as SPI (located 
inside of plcc ). is this still the case with 2.0 pcb revisions ?
