I am trying to build avrdude into a script for assembly line style programing of a bunch of arduino boards. One of the things I like to do is to just try the connection continuously until it succeeds and only then try the full programming. This way operators don't even need to press a key on the programming station. Unfortunately the stk500 mode (which arduino is based on) has a hard coded MAX_SYNC_ATTEMPTS. Is there a way to make this configurable? I'd like to set it to 1. Also I'd like to set the timeout time to be shorter if possible.

Please see https://arduino.stackexchange.com/questions/24784/avoid-the-10-attempts-of-avrdude-when-programmer-is-not-responding for another discussion of this issue.
