Thanks for that feedback. I'm quite familiar with ATmega parts, and prefer them 
tremendously to Microchip (schizophrenic is a great way to describe PICs).

I have an older JTAG Mk II, and a serial and USB AVRISP (Mk I/II). I see some 
stuff in the docs about using PDI to program XMEGA parts via recent versions of 
AVR Studio; does avrdude do this with the AVRISP Mk II?
