Let me know if you (or somebody else) has more concrete plans on the
integration of a new CPU. I just stripped down the machine files for a
no_cpu machine (all fakes), with some documentation about the required
units etc. An implementation of a new CPU, based on that skeleton,
would rise the priority for further explorations and documentation.
I already have more suggestions for easier implementation of new machines...
