It's just a suggestion, I'm not in need of this, so is resets that are not practical either, perhaps when the menu is implemented, you can create a sub-menu for resets only.

I lifted the TWI code from the twi.c code that was part of the Arduino Wire library, and have cleaned up extensively and modified for use with the code. I hope to have it be able to support buffered output very soon. Yes, TWI is itself buffered, but it acts in practice as an extra digital input/output port, with all of the timing constraints and pin manipulation requirements, so I still have to do all of the port manipulations that I did with the original legacy 16x2 LCD module.
I also plan to try to implement LCD brightness over TWI that isn't either off or eyeball-scorching on.
This is not good news, it is excellent news.
