Hi,

Nick, Yours is the only version I see with AVCC decoupled, is it necessary or just a precaution ?

The reference design has it, and I believe as a general rule you should decouple (all) the Vcc as close to the processor as you can.

Hi,
   I am a big fan of Mikes site re decoupling, LEDs, Motors etc.

   I can't see any harm in having the cap on AVCC, but from this reference -

I see only a single shared cap for VCC,AVCC,GND,AGND.

Yes I see what you mean. On my "breadboard" version though, there were quite long wire runs to get to AVCC (links across the breadboard etc.) so I added the second one. On the PCB the cap is probably quite close to both pins.

On the Atmel reference designs (search AVR042) they suggest LC filters on both Vcc and AVcc.  May not be nescessary, but for a less than a dollar in parts is not a bad idea.  I ended up using a 20-pin dip header that I placed the power LC filter, a reset circuit, power led, and a signal led.  For less than $10 is parts I was able to make 10 or so...  They make wiring up any AVR pretty easy.  

Also have a 14 pin headers with xtal circuits and AVcc LC filters
