i've put some comments inline, samuel, particularly referencing the
investigation last night and this morning:

if you create a bugreport for it we can actually put in an rfp for you
(request for payment) - it's a small budget for documentation.

key notes:

* the pipeline API is inviolate.  you do not break it.   *at no time*
will there *ever* be circumstances where it is bypassed.  evverrrr.
* the only "exception" to that is LDSTCompUnit - and it achieves this
by *not using the pipeline API at all*.
* the ASCII art diagram is slightly misleading to refer to its inputs
and outputs as "Registers" because this could be confused with
"Register File".
* FPPipeContext (dut.o.ctx, dut.i.ctx) is not a Record.  this would
have been the source of the issue you encountered

i wrote some code last week which auto-altered all of the isa
pseudocode sections - every single one of which (hundreds) had that
bug i mentioned.  having "fixed" that i've removed the css "code"
block change.
