Well you do what you gotta do. IMHO this job is just too easy to waste a
CPLD on it, I felt a bit funny about even using a PAL for the decode but
I was just building one board so I would have spent more time wiring than
I spent burning PALs. Anyway the loose parts will cost less than the CPLD
and they're less likely to get discontinued in a year. If you're tight for
space you can use the SOIC versions...
