When reading the specs of the ESP8285 I found that GPIO9 and GPIO10 are basically
free for use:
Note that since ESP8285 has SPI flash memory internally connected in DOUT mode,
pins 9 and 10 may be used as GPIO / I2C / PWM pins.
Is it likely to make those available?

Confirmed the ESP8285 works with micropython just fine. Soooooo small! :D

Yep, I also ordered a few of those. Now I need to learn to solder such tiny stuff...1/20'' pin width, sigh.

Nice trick with soldering two 2.54mm headers to the 1.27mm holes!
