let's discuss that on that bugreport.

btw, one important thing: the "original" NLNet Grant is *running low*
because of our need to transfer to POWER ISA (the expectation was to
use an existing RV codebase such as minerva and jump-start straight
from running working code).

therefore, the way we need to do this is for people to pitch in with
other tasks that *are* allocated new budgets, such as the Simulator,
formal proofs, and so on.

this means we need to *up our game* somewhat because we'll need to
work collaboratively and keep in touch regularly.  suggestions on how
to do that appreciated.
