In my case, this is hobby stuff, so I can move at my own pace.

Hmm. I like this idea. I think I'll have to investigate further. I'd like to
have the main program live in flash, and have some type of initial image
start out in flash, but have changes applied in RAM. I haven't looked at the
VM yet, but I have some ideas, so I'll see where that goes.
Then you could download an initial image, but make incremental changes.
I'd like to thank everyone for the pointers so far, it's enough to keep me
