This reminds me of a question I have about USRP2.  My understanding is the 
USRP2 has a Xilinx Spartan 3, which I don't
think come in anything other than BGA packages.  Hopefully Matt brought the 
JTAG lines out in case people want to
deadbug a header and use standard tools.  Even better would be the 0.1" holes 
to install a header if desired.
