Floppy port can be used on two way (serial for data and GPIO - 8 bit to arrange HW data flow) to improve functionality further...

Look at the Amiga schematic - port B of the EVEN CIA is dedicated to provide floppy subsystem control - this is 8 bit bidirectional data, additionally F is connected to INDEX.
http://amigadev.elowar.com/read/ADCD.../node012E.html .
Same EVEN CIA have unused serial port which can be used as primitive SPI (it is wired to Parallel port).

But i still opting for dedicated RPi interface perhaps even with DMA - RPi can be used as accelerated graphic card (2D and 3D, Amiga video can be combined digitally trough RPi camera interface so at the same time it can be also flicker fixer), audio card, perhaps coprocessor (at least for video, audio, Ethernet).
