I can't speak for anyone else, but personally I just need an extra channel to converse with the robostix, so integration with the existing robostix code would be just fine for me.  Murphy's Law says that someone is going to want them separately if you put them both in the same binary though. :-)

There's been a couple of posts here (and on the wiki forum) about NSSP and SPI but as far as I can tell nobody has gotten them working yet.

Well, there may or may not be one :)

The NSSP driver required to talk to the robostix could be quite
different from other devices which might connect to NSSP.

Let me take a look at what's required on the gumstix side. I know the
AVR side is pretty straight forward. I'm taking a 6 day weekend so I
should have some time to squeeze in something.

Is there need for such a driver when not using the robostix? If a
driver doesn't already exist on the gumstix side, I can either make a
standalone one or incorporate it into the robstix_drv one that already
