Yeah! I2C bus are great to build up external interfaces. I remember of
another life when hacking I2C interface for BBC Archimedes computer in a
student project. Does this project is intended to be OS independant?
Do you have any URL about this project?

If necessary, I can provide hosting at ofset.org with what-ever-you-need
for educational French speaking related project to Squeak.
