I welcome such attempts very much. This #ifdef hell is annoying me more and 
more (even if I am responsible for it too :-().

But we have to be careful here. We can't just rip out existing interface 
without supplying replacements.

Yes, you will... ;-)

I'm right now catching up on the discussion from last week and I have to 
admit, that the DataFlash handling always annoyed me too, even (or possibly 
because) I never used it personally before. I would compare this DataFlash 
most with a NAND Flash, so why not as you already suggested use something 

dflash info
dflash device
dflash read
dflash write

Now I continue with the remaining 200 mails in this thread... ;-)

Best regards,
