The audio IC Wolfson WM8753 is cool :)))))

I took the FPGA stuff as NeoXXXX ideas - is doesn't seem that
far-fetched to imagine a future model with an expansion port for a bunch
of different things, so this may have some utility after all :-)

The datasheet certainly suggests that the SoC is capable of VGA @ 30FPS,
I think someone suggested that it couldn't, but they didn't provide any
sources when I asked and I lost track of the thread.. so I'm still under
the assumption that the datasheet is correct.

Although, it is dependent upon the driver implementation - DMA seems to
take the brunt of the load, but there was a lot of other stuff in the
LCD Controller section which, frankly, scared and perplexed me and I
didn't take time to understand it properly.
