It should be quite straightforward to make such a firmware now that  
Firmata is a library.  Basically, just take a working pulseIn/ 
ultrasound firmware and replace the Serial stuff with the Firmata  
library.  I am aiming to get Firmata in Arduino 0012, then it should  
be quite easy to do since Firmata will be installed.

Then you would use the same [arduino] object to talk to that firmware  
to get the ultrasound values.

The ServoFirmata example is designed to be used with the new Servo  
library that will be included in Arduino 0012.  Things are in a  
slightly odd state because this is the final release before it gets  
included into the Arduino package.  Then you won't need to download  
Firmata anymore, just Pduino/[arduino].

As we enjoy great advantages from inventions of others, we should be  
glad of an opportunity to serve others by any invention of ours; and  
this we should do freely and generously.         - Benjamin Franklin
