A possible UBM

Better get this idea down before it gets lost in the haze. Louis Savain's UBM looks like the way computing is heading. IntellaSys' SEAForth chip looks very much like what Savain says a parallel processing CPU (MIMD) ought to look like. Are the processing elements of COSA implementable in 64 words of RAM and 64 words of ROM?

The problem is that the devel tools for the SEAForth are primitive. There's no way a non-specialist is going to write parallel programs for the SEAForth using circuit emulators and Forth. So the task, if I care to take it, is to implement a graphical COSA devel environ which targets the SEAForth. Or hosts the IDE itself? Is that feasible?
