i just had a word with michiel again and he's happy to move the EUR 12k
budget to this task.

i say "happy", but because the PET Programme is ended this *cannot be done
again*, even if we needed it.

just this once then we have the opportunity for a budget for:

* VERY BASIC gcc support for SV
* binutils
* the macros idea that you came up with, jacob


the other thing is: i have been looking at Rijndael and after a bit of
analysis i think we can do crypto-primitives at the basic level through SV
REMAP...*not* by adding hardcoded 128 bit opcodes.

making the router proposal under the Assure Programme mostly about these,
adding in something about blockchain just to keep the EU Commission happy,
we stand a good chance of a successful application.

given that bitmanipulation is a heavy part of crypotography we have a way
to get funding for bitmanip into SV as well.

now i need to find someone to put as the main signatory.
