Here are a few ideas I believe are worthy and doable.

1) Network sniffer/analyzer.
2) Multi-system emulator.
	SVGAlib emulators could easily be ported, once we have a simple
	framebuffer device.
3) Low-profile text-only network terminal.
	Play MUDs from your couch!
4) SOHO gateway/firewall.
5) Network log server
