I have also concluded that I will need them for out ISA to S100 bus converter board and XVGA type video boards.  These are all projects in the works and will probably not see the light of day for some months.

Also, I forgot to mention: there are folks who have reverse-engineered how to burn and erase the GALs properly.  When I have more free time (mine is in the negative at the moment), I'll be glad to do a quick project to make a serial/USB PAL/GAL burner if there isn't a cheap alternative out there.
