Since normal -U read/write operations are done page-wise,
the 'A' command is only issued once per page.  Keeping
track of each page's address between invocations to
butterfly_paged_write()/butterfly_paged_load() would cause
additional effort (including maintaining state within
library code).  I think the performance gain is not that
magnificent (less than 10 %) to warrant this change.

the butterfly_initialize() function check for the auto-increment feature of the bootloader using the 'a' command but ignore it by after.

Instead of sending multiple "A nn nn" command before each data packet, it could just send a "A 00 00" at the beginning and a flow of data packets by after, as the bootloader increment itself the address.

This would be way more efficient.
