OK, i've been playing game. :)  If this is a frequently asked question,
it should be in the FAQ, so now it is in the FAQ. ;-)  I've edited it
a bit to impersionalize the language (is this OK for people?  I'm used
to it from scientific work), and i've added a couple of xrefs to other
parts of the documentation that give a background about the concepts

Well, maybe you could provide an addendum that addresses the data array
in flash memory thing?

I'm not against it.  I've got some test boards with chips around that
are bootloader-capable, and i'm interested in having a bootloader that
uses a relatively `standard' protocol.  Initially, i thought about
kermit or xmodem, but i'm now more leaning towards the STK500 protocol
since this would allow the bootloader to immediately talk to any
STK500-aware programming tool.  If i get around to implement it, i don't
mind contributing it for the `examples' section.
