I've got some samples. Unfortunately it's beginning to look like I might
have to buy and cannibalise an Ethernet card. Unless someone here has a
spare they want rid of. I need the Ethernet interface transformer and RJ45
socket to be intact at the very least.

That settles it - I've got a spare 256kbit RAM lying around somewhere that's
just begging to be used, plus I've got a spare MAX233 (SOIC SMD) and some
odd-job parts. This 80C400 is getting turned into a webserver :-)
