I'm no expert, but it appears that OpenCores have a working core that
runs most of the MIPS instruction set. MIPS is a very well known, tried
and trusted architecture. My cable modem has a MIPS-compatible processor
made by Toshiba. It seems to me that MIPS is just as realistic and
usable platform as ARM. But I would be very interested to hear from
anyone who knows better.

Now, I wonder when Qemu will support MIPS emulation? :-)

Cheers, Chris.
