Umm, so is Paraflasher...

New Years resolution to get it up and running asap. This baby was meant for
flashrom. It should be relatively easy now that flashrom supports external
programmers. Pretty much just need to setup the parallel port interface.
Also if that NANO BIOS Programmer can do SPI, then my assumptions about
Paraflasher doing SPI are 100% correct :-)
