Embedded Raspberry Pi?

Anyone here thought about embedding a whole Raspberry Pi computer into their Amigas' case? It seems to me that it might be a great way to add, for example, secure wifi to devices like the A500.

NOT a bad idea, in fact you can run Linux on the RPI and access it via the serial port (terminal app running on the amiga side)!
There are options like VNC connection between Amiga and RPi -AFAIK the TwinVNC needs CPU >020 -, or possible to use SLIP (as server) on RPi ....
