I am not suggesting replacing or changing the existing offering. I was thinking of a GODIL-lite, which was optimized for DIP40/48 applications, skipping the headers, and any of the other non DIP-related items. You'd buy a GODIL for development, and maybe that's all. But, if you wanted to replace a 6510 for a number of people, you'd finish your design, buy a batch of GODIL-lites, program them with the 6510 code, and send them to people for installation. I may not have the target audience correct, but I was thinking of GODIL as a "dev board", and having a "prod board" seemed logical in that case.
