I'd suggest an even simpler mode -- just use the $50 Cubieboard2 (or 
Cubietrick) directly as the development environment.

We already use a Ubuntu dom0, and so it should just be a matter of Linux kernel 
configuration to get a desktop up and running from the HDMI port.  It would 
also be *extremely* convenient to be able to do Mirage presentations without 
having a Mac, by plugging a mouse and projector into the Cubieboard directly :-)
