As Gunnar has written many times, the Apollo core does have an FPU already. It is just not identical to a 68060 FPU.

To precise this:
APOLLO HardFPU is 100% identical to the 68060 FPU from instructions.
Its just not tuned for placement in Cyclone3 yet.
Now to me this implies that one is available but needs to be refined before it can be placed inside the Cyclone3. Now unless someone has categorical proof that the current Vampire cards that do use a Cyclone3 FPGA will NEVER have a hardFPU EVER then we need to wait and see what happens rather than "assuming" that it will never get one.
