k, sounds good, though I'll probably want to wire it to the build server's
internal rs232 port instead (iirc it's a header on the motherboard -- can
easily build the required level-shifting)...why waste a perfectly good
serial port? also allows me to put the fpga inside the server's case which
is important for protection from stuff accidentally falling on it...it's in
the corner of my bedroom.
