No kidding!  I'm hacking on the new HP 20B financial calculator (think of
it as a $40 AT91SAM7L128 demo board), and that SAMBA program takes 15
minutes (!) to dump or program 128k flash through the serial port.  When it
decides to connect, that is.  My hacked up OpenOCD script does it in less
than 30s through JTAG.
