>But I'm not offering to do the programming for you - too tedious and time-consuming, especially for lots of one-offs. As you say, this gets tricky. I can sell chips as a business (and I do, as of recently), but I need designs that I can order in quantities of several hundred, otherwise it isn't really worthwhile.

I wasn't suggesting that you be Mr Y. In fact, I was a little weary of suggesting it at all, as I don't want it to cut into your business.
At the end of the day, maybe more people will just have to make the 20-odd investment in a programmer and become self sufficient.

Gary - if you fancy going down this route, look into PICkit clones, which are typically quite a bit cheaper than the microchip offering.
However, do a little homework though as some of the real cheap ones may not work very well. I have an Olimex PICkit 3 clone, which seems to do everything it should.

Exactly! :)
