[Stripping SPI]

It's a snowey day, and I had a small bit of time to hack something up
(I've not thought about the language, it's not even been read twice,
feedback welcome)

Now, if we want to also allow permissive use of the code is another thing, but
I really don't mind (and use Expat enough already), so I'm clearly fine with
language like this.
