I have been thinking about doling that or in  different family if they lend
themselves such as MicroSemi.   I have gone through some test fitting but
haven't really checked out GODIL, for instance can they program the VCC and
Ground pins or do they have to physically configure?  I suspect that to keep
the cost down that the PCB might be wider than the .6" DIP but didnt yet
research if thats a show stopper.

How about creating a GODIL with Altera chips? That could be interesting too.
