[Fun discussion. Thanks.]
Many years ago, somebody on the FPGA newsgroup pointed out that, in general,
if you can do the problem in software that's probably the better way. One of
the considerations is that it's easier to hire programmers rather than
FPGAs are halfway between real hardware and software. You can try a simple
change without any harsh time or cost penalty to make new masks and new
chips. If that change is a bug fix, you might think of it as typical sloppy
programmer behavior. On the other hand, that change may be a new idea you
want to try...
For many people in this group, fun is probably the most important
consideration. Different things will appeal to different people.
These are my opinions, not necessarily my employer's. I hate spam.
