We'll have to see how big this all gets. The one good thing about running 
the BIOS on the board is that linuxbios doesn't get too big, i.e you don't 
need code in linuxbios to initiate a particular board. The size is the 
emulator code -- no more. If we put in code for every card, how big will 
it get? How big is the ATI Radeon code?

I still like this a lot, however. Certainly for boards with ATI glued on 
this is a huge win.
