No that's definitely true.  And being a car guy I know -- I do most of the
work on my car myself.  It turns out that some further exploration of the
PICAll site reveals that the PIC16PRO and the PICAll both program the 16F7X.
The listings on dontronics, 123, etc. are very incomplete and the listing on
PICAll took some prodding to find (it was under software not hardware,
shrug).

Well I looked around the net and found that the SuperPro series were
generally less expensive than other models while offering similar if not
better performance in some cases.  I then even found some on eBay.  Since
the PIC16PRO and PICAll support what I'm after, I might just get those.  I
could break down and get a Warp-13.. but if I'm going this route, why bother
with the extra functionality?
