I just encountered an interesting piece of news in Planet Debian.

It apparently is now possible to use free (as in freedom or Debian Free 
Software Guidelines) software tools to translate VHDL into Lattice 

I look forward to seeing the first use of this for Commodore hardware.  
Perhaps someone could develop a switchless ROM cartridge with this? Or 
something fancier, such as a REU clone, if the supported FPGAs are big 
enough to accommodate such a design.

(I hope this is not old news. Reverse engineered support for some old 
FPGAs has been around quite a while.)
