I've just implemented Spartan-3 download using the existing Spartan 2 
driver. Actually, it required no changes. You simply need to add 
definitions for new image sizes to include/spartan2.h (though even that 
is not mandatory).

I was thinking about doing some cosmetic changes later, like replacig 
references to Spartan-II with "Spartan family" or something, but so far 
had no time nor lots of desire to do that.

Unfortunately, I won't have access to that source until the weekend, but 
since the change is trivial, you should have no problem at all.

BTW, the same seems to be  true about the new FPGAs from the Virtex 
family: the download procedure is still the same.

Happy hacking,
