I think the parallel port is far more interesting since it has a lot
of ins and outs, which can be controlled asynchronously.

Should be relatively easy to do with an STK that calls the API.

Same thing there. (Or possibly some parallel port custom hardware
solution - see above.)

No, it's a good idea.

I'm not totally sure, but it seems that new macs have ditched the
classical serial port, and goes for USB only. And to use USB, you need
a USB controller, which makes things more complicated.
