That sounds very similar to the TI OMAP-TEB and EVM platforms...

It'd be nice to have a header for the ETM9 pins too, even though they 
don't work very well on the 5910, and of course they're shared with the 
camera.  Will the camera disappear?  And is there any chance of getting at 
McBSPs?  I'd like to add multiple audio inputs and outputs (and USB isn't 
really up to it.)  I could do this on an add-on card of my own doing if I 
had McBSP access.

I'd definitely buy one of these, maybe more than one.  It's just the ease 
of hackery that's stopped me buying an E3.
