I was thinking pretty much along those lines (and wanted to
know whether someone did it already.. but apparently not).

I guess the easiest way is to do it via an additional command
line argument (and not as a menu in the emulator as I had
originally contemplated).

Then one only has to add yet another command line option
that “boots from the serial line” - and there is your
test bed for testing Oberon0.Mod without having to
carry your FPGA hardware with you..

Really? How can one possibly forget that? ;-)
