Aw sweet!  I was going to jump in and suggest FRAM (it's the only part of
my on-paper RF08/RS08 emulator that I've actually built) but you're way
ahead of me.  It's such cool stuff -- the parallel version might even make
sense for an Omnibus RAM board, if we didn't already have new ones of those
recently.  I love the fact that a whole string of RS08s fits on a
daughterboard that's about 2" square (with the serial version), and
the write durability is way above a real RS08.

This sounds like an unbelievably awesome project.  Nice going!
