Are the chips in those converters able to recognize if they're
connected to a bidirectional device, and block reads if they aren't?
The converter I'm using is ieee1284 capable. If the chip in that
converter can't recognize if the connected device is bidirectional or
not, then I'm thinking it's better to allow reads in case the device
is bidirectional
