Not so wonderful. The FPGA is still proprietary and requires proprietary
design tools to generate its programming file. However, the same HDL code that
is used to program the FPGA can be ported to manufacture an actual "hard" chip
pretty easily (but again, as of today, using proprietary tools... argh!).
Copyleft HDL/logic designs are good, though :)
