btw jacob i've been re-reading alu_hier.py - both of those classes -
ALU and DummyALU - *are* FSM-based (and obey the pipeline API).

i've taken a tag/snapshot of the pipeline work (div_pipeline) prior to
replacement, so we can always refer back to it.  i'm strongly leaning
towards ripping out the entire lot.  because of the abstraction of
using the ieee754fp code it's really hard to follow.  even with 6 to 8
editor windows open i'm having a hard time keeping up with it.

so feel free to rip out the whole lot ok?
