 appreciated, dale.  something that, in my... eenteresting history of
interactions in the software libre world of the past 18 years i'm a
leetle paranoid about.

 intriguing.  as there's some interest i'm happier to be able to carry
on a bit more: investigations of SD/MMC which is coincidentally
multiplexed onto the EOMA68-A20 CPU Card [not as a bit-banged
interface, jerry - one of the many assumptions i left it with you to
ask as questions not as judgements] show that SD/MMC has an SPI mode
[not as a big-banged interface, jerry - another of the assumptions
that you made as judgements].

 and, although it's sketchy, there appears to be evidence in the form
of a broadcom wifi driver of active support for SPI in the allwinner
SD/MMC/SDIO hardware:


 so it looks at first glance like it's possible.  really i should get
some sort of random bit of SPI-based hardware and try it out.
