    They exist; they aren't supported just yet but I'm hoping to add
    support for some next week.

    You could always buy two dual-port PCI cards. Take a look at
    parport_pc.c to find out which ones are supported, or else just go to
    the store and get some and hope. ;-) Send me the lspci output and I'll
    see if I can't add support for them (it's usually very easy).
