fooocuuuus :)  adding the module to Logical main_stage.py should be
around... maximum 10 lines of code.  really.  not.  difficult.  link
the inputs.  link the outputs.  err... that's it.

btw as a third (incremental) step, after integrating it and putting in
the unit test into soc.fu.logical.test/test_pipe_caller.py, you should
actually be able to integrate the formal proof into the Logical
pipeline as well.

there isn't.  there should be.  however it is up to Marketnext.  the
issue is that i am not sure if they understand quite how high the
resource requirements are, and consequently how long it will take
people in India (and other places across the world) to install the
development environment.

to introduce over 15 different groups / teams / individuals to
Libre-SOC development.

their review is a mandatory requirement as part of the NLNet funding.
i did point out to them that asking to have a private conversation
about their role is not exactly very transparent :)
