This makes sense for now.

This does not make much sense. It limits the usage of PICkit 2.
By the way, what is to be gained from this compared to the original
PICkit 2? What will be the cost? The original PICkit 2 has kind of
"cuteness" factor which all the clones do not have. IMHO,
it is not worth the efforts to clone a PICkit 2 in most places. No offence
intended but the existing PICkit 2 clones are ugly at best compared to
The only thing which might make some senses is to incorporate
the PICkit 2 design into some demo boards.
