John must be playing hooky, but I need a clock generator
to meet the following reqs:

- controlled by PIC - for use in general-purpose uC testing
 [ie, to test uC firmware at various clock speeds and baudrates]
- speed of change not especially important - set and retain
- variable duty - at least 25%, 33%, 50%, 66%, 75%
- ok for 2 outputs to vary together - nice if one = inverse of other
- fraction of main clock ok, but need at least 4-8 Mhz
- freq range - 32khz to 4-8 Mhz - general range of uC operation
- controlled directly by PIC - ie, digitally, PWM ok
