If I had a source of FPGAs that were decently documented - in
particular, that didn't demand use of a vendor-provided opaque binary
blob to generate the programming data, I'd probably be doing that
(among other things) already.  (Such things may well already exist, but
I haven't found them.  Not that I've put all _that_ much effort into
looking; finding needles in haystacks is not exactly my forte - unless
the needles are bugs and the haystacks are code.)
