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...
