Intel Galileo - Arduino loader

I have absolutely no interest in using the Arduino IDE for anything, particularly with the Galileo. It is interesting that the Galileo provides an Arduino like platform on top of a running linux system.

This is done in large part via the stuff in /opt/cln/galileo and the clloader program. Apparently clloader acts like an AVR boot loader (more or less) and listens on the USB port, downloading "sketches" in response to the arduino GUI. Something like that.

Feedback? Questions? Drop me a line!
