Stepconf: GUI to configure parport "step+direction" machines (updated)

At CNC Workshop, I spent some time learning to use glade and put together a "druid" (gnome version of the "wizard") to help configure simple stepper machines. I finally got around to implementing 80% of the behavior as well. Update: An updated version of stepconf actually generates a runnable configuration.

The created configuration files use at least some TRUNK features, so this program cannot be used with the released version of emc2.

Only a few of the features are tested. When it's finished, I hope to be able to configure:

To run, change to the Stepconf directory and execute: python

Requires python-gnome2 among other packages.
