Yes, I know people have been doing it for a while. I was thinking
that you were suggesting a built-it-yourself session where
participants would learn how to do it themselves. I'm a software guy
and could easily write a software emulator but have less experience
with doing hardware design. I'd love some pointers on how to
implement a CPU in an FPGA.
