to end users.

well, only our engineers can do this, and we don't have any engineers in
the US.  So the shipping would have to go to Taiwan or Europe, which is
very expensive (on the magnitude of two times 70USD), so it donesn't
make a lot of sense economically.  Also, it creates overhead on our
already very stretched R&D resources.

We're working with Ti to resolve it, we have received very good
responses now and just need to work out a license agreement for the
firmware updater.  Once that has been reached, we will make an ipkg of
the firmware updater and the firmware, and distribute that to our users.
