It's not at all meant to be practical.  I want something I can point at
and say that I nearly completely made that computer.  And later, perhaps
a second one would be made without the 68k, and a FPGA instead as a lisp

All a long ways away.  I'm working on virtually no personal projects
currently, other than studying and learning about Deb.
