 megabytes, megabytes... oh christ yes, duh whoops!  i thought mike
had said kbytes, then got completely confused, but the answer /
conclusion stays the same.

 btw, mike: there's a solution that i've heard about, it's TQFP, and
amazingly it's a 1ghz ARM Cortex A8, but i'm waiting to hear that the
company that makes it isn't committing GPL violations by witholding
the linux kernel source code and toolchain before mentioning which one
it is.
