Go for it; finishing the 4 MB+512 kB cartridge for the Vic-20 is enough
work for me in this year.  BTW, the circuit board will be for the Vic-20
only.  If it supported the Ethernet module the TFE is based on, the
circuit board would have to be much bigger than 42 mm by 90 mm.  The same
applies to C64 support.  But there are plans for a simpler C64 cartridge,
using removable media.

When it comes to Contiki, I'd love to see SLIP or PPP implemented for
my C2N232 interface.  But this would require some firmware development,
so that the C2N232 could input commands also from the Commodore side.
Unfortunately, my time is scarce right now, as I'm about to finish my
PhD thesis.  If anyone else is interested in implementing this, I can
supply the hardware at a discounted price, and a protocol description.
