I’m not planning on building one of these in the foreseeable future, so my opinion ought not to weigh as heavily as those who are. But I would probably shy away from the SOIC approach. I think there might be better ways of accommodating the increase, like combining some logic into GALs. Or maybe a second board.

I'm curious how you guys feel about using SOIC chips
instead of the traditional DIP. Yes they are a bit more
difficult to solder up and don't have a socket for easy
I was wanting to add additional chips and a 10 position DIP
switch to the FP mini design. However there is just not enough
room. I may be able to squeeze them in but it would be very tight
and fear there may be no room for traces.
