Well, that was surprisingly easy. I've just compiled the firmware for the Bus Pirate (with a change to one of the strings so I can tell it apart from the official one), flashed it, and checked that my change is there.
And all that without spending ages trying to put a build environment together - in fact, the longest part of the whole process was the installer for the MPLAB IDE. Compare that to the last time I tried doing anything with an embedded system, and gave up after spending several days trying to compile the necessary cross-compiler.
Anyway, now to make some real changes to the firmware...
