I can do that too.  And my hand can slip, causing a solder bridge to an
adjacent pin.  It's a PITA to clear away that solder bridge from those small
pins.

Oh, how I long for DIP and 50mil SMT packages.  I figured it out - it is
possible to put an ethernet chip into a 28-pin package (with an 8-bit wide
uP interface).  So why doesn't anyone do it?  They have 100+ pins.  Phooey!
