good.  do bear in mind it's beginning to hold up development.  i'm
working round that.

as i explained to Cole: there are two ways to do development:

1) do everything yourself.  understand everything.  do everything from
first principles.  read every available piece of documentation.

2) find an existing implementation and translate it.

the first way takes months.  we do not have months.

the second way takes days to weeks.

so if you can pick up the pace significantly by working from microwatt
source code, and translating it to nmigen, that would be good.
