ROM-blower advice

Hello all,
Could peeps recommend potential ROM-blowers for the hobbyist. Hoped-for list of features:
-Some flexibility
Various sizes of DIP and PLCC packages
(E)EPROM and FlashROM
-Able to read / write PALs / GALs
Any cleaver ones that can read regardless of protection settings?
-Reading / Writing PICs would be nice
-Non *NIX-based software
Sorry, I just can't get on with *NIX-based OS's
-Other sensible features?
-Um, cough, not too expensive.

Planned Use:
Well, reading / writing (E)EPROMs / FlashROMS from various (mostly retro) systems.
Reading / writing PALs / GALs too.
I can roll my own system/OS ROMs and take the next step in making my own hardware - that would include de-constructing old designs, hence the PAL/GAL reading/writing capability.

(Hmmm, I wonder if one write a simple IDE controller in software using a PIC, rather than using discrete logic/PALs/GALs?)
