Actually 020 is out of my scope - I'm just waiting for a new PAK-68/3-030
This is all doable on the V3 series. The booster has a addon port, where alt-RAM and even IDE can be done. Anyone can develop anything for the V3 addon port.
The 020 has to use TOS206.. so that limits some things. 68000 TOS104/TOS206 ... 68020 TOS206 only.

I must say that I see little use in a 32MHz CPU without fast RAM or atleast caches. Without this it will only be marginally faster than your 16MHz accelerator.
Back in the day it would have made sense with an expansion port, because these things were so expensive to make and the buyers had a lot less money to spend. Nowadays I think it's better to just go all the way and make a single, but compact and well-functioning product.
Well, then the V3 series sounds like a winner. I would still suggest that it has a "fall-back" mode where you could
flip a switch (hardware or software) and have it boot up into a totally stock 8mhz machine running TOS v1.04.
Thanks for all the hard work Chris!
