I don't know if this is kosher, but has anyone looked at the (vast array of) offerings from Comblocks (comblock.com)? They sell FPGA IP cores for all of their hardware, and it seems like it might be a good match for building a basic I/Q acquisition system. Here's a full product list: http://comblock.com/product_list.html
The block diagram at the bottom of this page gives an idea of how things could work: http://comblock.com/com8002.html

I have no knowledge of radio design beyond block diagrams, but I'm
very interested in this project as the sort of device every community
workshop or school should be able to get hold of.  I'm happy to
prototype PCBs and devices locally and help on the software
interfacing side.
