I've been wondering why you choose to do it this way ? Why not just
always reserve all three standard port registers ? Were you thinking
about one application (lcdproc) using the output-pins and an other
application using the input-pins ? I wouldn't mind reserving them all
at once. Gives more transparent code anyway.
