No - but here are a couple of suggestions for feasible Oberon-based projects
that involve this machine:

1. Write a cross-assembler using Oberon that targets the gigatron's
instruction set.

2. Write a cross-compiler for the language PICL (or a variant of it) in
Oberon that generates machine code for the gigatron. The PICL documentation
and compiler sources are here:
