Well the question about Harvard architecture was just a ... question. I was curious if this was
considered sometimes during the developement of the F-CPU (and yes I have read the manual at least
this one http://f-cpu.seul.org/cedric/unstable/F-CPU_manual-0.2.7c-en-color.pdf and found no
reference about it). I think it can offer a bit more performance and since I remembered that the
ELF format is already separated in data segments and instruction segments for a moment seemed a
good idea. 
Anyway, moving on, I would like to try to do something about the fetching unit if nobody started
on it yet.... 

I must not fear.
Fear is the mind-killer.
Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.
