SPI controller for A1200 (clock port)

Ladies and gentlemen, it's show time, my new little toy

It's a SPI controller for A1200 (connected to clock port), which will allow you to connect an SD card reader, network controller, etc.
Below is a photos of a working prototype.

Just make sure it can also be connected via cable - there are more clockports than just on the A1200 mobo.

Now there are drivers for RTC DS1306, SD card reader, hardware decoder MP3 VS1003, pressure sensor LPS331AP.
I'm currently working on ethernet driver for ENC28J60 chip.

I'll buy two when availlable. Would be nice to have option for PCMICI nics.

Any estimated release days? Wich shop will get these for sale?

Would this work with a clockport expander?

I am just mentioning the cable since the CP-cables usually are female. I.e. the SPI-adaptor would require a plug (pins) additionally.

Is the spi/SD card driver rom-able? it would be great to be able to boot off it.

It would certainly be great if all hardware with SPI would have an unified API, so that drivers for devices would work on all.
