I would like someone to write a library to use the radio on the ATmega128RFA1 chip. Something that will let me setup network ID, channel, the device's ID, and baud rate... everything needed for simple communications right from the setup() function. Library should be as small as possible, and allow for end user to include, and use radio to communicate wirelessly with other ATmega128RFA1's in a mesh network.
I envision something that can be used from the Arduino IDE like so: (this may be an oversimplification)
radio.channel = xxx;
radio.id = xxx;
radio.baudrate = xxx;
radio.send("blah blah blah");

The prototype will only have In-Circuit Serial Programming (ICSP) header, so you will need your own programmer. Reason for needing library instead of using Bitcloud is so prototype can be used with Arduino IDE.
