IMHO he was (sorta) right.
I have added a new Level II driver for 1-Wire that takes advantage of the 1-wire kernel support available from Linux kernel v2.6.29+. Works both with direct gpio as on Raspberry Pi and with other masters on full blown Linux systems.
Documentation is here http://www.vscp.org/docs/vscpd/doku.php?id=level2_driver_wire1
Here is a VSCP Firmware getting started at last. Well a beginning.
