What other functions could the coprocessor perform: audio 
and speech compression, video and audio decompression, ...?  
It would be great if the XO could become a platform for good 
quality multi-site video and voice conferencing.

What would be needed to proceed: an XO laptop, the schematic 
of the XO motherboard, a contract, ...?

Here's another thought, for anyone.  Could the Speex 
compresssed output from a multi-site voice conference 
be piped to a server that would perform real time translation 
into different languages, and then piped back in Speex 
format to the participants in the conference?
