D'oh! I see what you mean.

The ARM7TDMI controller is just a drop in replacement for the PIC to increase the code space and speed up execution allowing for more complex programs (e.g. hard drive emulation).

The PIC's purpose is to program the FPGA on power-on (and do some bootloading) and provides the interface between the FPGA and the SD card for disk emulation.

It cannot be used as a CPU within a design. So the answer is NO.
