yummy :-))

i think that the multiplier is being currently
re-re-re-redesigned... don't worry :-)

can you try with my latest snapshot of the ROP2 unit ?
i am curious about the signal drivers and the clocking
frequency. i'll try to make a testframe for this, if you want
(otherwise look at the testbench to see the way to use the
different parts but it won't synthesise because of the file
parsing stuffs).

Btw, i will start the design of the register set.
Any help welcome !!!
