Problems with Staapl

I'm using it for something practical after 6 months of leaving it
alone.  What is annoying?

  - PIC chip config is brutal (binary only)

  - Basic PIC18 library configuration also: there is no mechanism for
    defaults + there is a bunch of "include" files that are badly

  - There is no standard approach for debugging up to getting the
    serial console working.  Make a check list or something.
    (i.e. measuring "#0xF0 transmit" with a frequency counter).

  - There is no automated procedure for porting Microchip include
    files to .f
