Grief.  Good point.  This is WYSIWYG.

If you were to use Lancelot for PS/2 ports, then you'd be out of
expansion headers, but otherwise I think it wouldn't be too hard to hook
up an MMC/SD card slot which is blessed with a low pin count, though not
as fast & big as CF. Ethernet would be harder
(http://www.fpga4fun.com/10BASE-T.html suggests a scary hack for
10Base-T Ethernet if everything else fails).

As of this writing, this is the only commercially available EP2C70 board
out there.
