But yup, not too useful for youse.
well i appreciate their aims might be different but maybe my idea is more powerful than it appears... because if you have enough Blitters joined together what you really have on your hands is a dynamically reconfigurable FPGA that has access to your graphics RAM.

And another thing i'd suggest we could have really done with is a second copper for initialising the Blitter, because it's quite a task to do it with the normal copper and at the same time get it to do fancy screen effects. Depending on how you implement that, you could create something that can do what a SIMD can do but much more flexible.
