couldn't you just put a USB port on the pedal and save yourself a few 
steps? (and a few dollars too...)

using midi in/out to program the pedal isn't bad, if there is an 
editor/librarian for it. It isn't much data so download times are short. 
You just have to remember that the pedal needs Midi IN! A lot of midi 
pedals only have midi out for some reason, and therefore have cut 
themselves off from any possibility of saving and reloading presets. (the 
ground control for example...)
