Good idea, will be done!

Oh, just forgot this in my e-mail. In my ECP-emulation by software
I have a function ...e1284_set_channel(...) to change the channel (address).
I thought to code a similar function as general ieee1284-function.

I also thought about two other solutions:
- A further argument for the channel in read/write functions
- First byte in read/write functions is interpreted as channel (address).

I prefer to do channel changes by a separate function, because I think
channel changes are a little portion of the whole data flow. What do
you prefer?
