I can fit it in, for development. I made some FPGA board for myself,
simply because I think they are more flexible.
So, I just have to wire up the 7516x drivers, and can start debugging.
Yes, I intend to put a sfot cpu in it, so I can use standard toolchains
for the software

As I said before, I have them here, because I made them for this purpose.
And I don't have a problem believing that you can wrap up a whole cpu
board faster than I do ;-)
