"VeR1" (as good as any, and it doesn't look like a failed memory test)

That shouldn't stop integration. With the code integrated, we can start 
porting boards over to whatever-it-is-called-now (wiicn), and fix issues 
as we encounter them.
And if some boards require special access to wiicn, we'll have to allow 
them to redirect wiicn access through functions pointers - that's not 
hard, and doesn't change the design as far as I see it, merely some 
implementation bits.

Expansion roms are not on the roadmap yet (the buildsystem doesn't even 
cover them), and this is something that can be modified at build time at 
will (romtool add-whatever filename [compression flag]) once we support 
it. No change in wiicn design, no significance for the patch in 
question, no need to debate it now.
