OK, fair enough.  I guess maybe I've overly paranoid and like to make
sure that someone has thought through exactly what various core clocks
should be and made sure that the voltage matched and that clocks were
never out of spec.  ...but if others really like specifying more ideal
values then I'm OK with it.  I will say that I'd really like the PLLs
to be exact, though.  I think those are now...
