Feature Request: Full FTDI Connection on Alchitry Cu

as I am now working with connecting the Alchitry Cu with my application I had a closer look on the FTDI-Chip. It is possible to do multiple modes as UART, SPI and parallel with it. On the schematic only two pins of the port B for communication with the FPGA are connected (usable for UART). It would be a very nice feature if the user can optionally connect the other pins to the FPGA (for example with jumpers or solder pads for 0 Ohm resistors). This would lead to a gain of data rate (if using parallel mode) if someone is trying to do something with high data throughput. Additionally communicating with SPI can be more simple to implement for beginners and makes it easier to migrate on a micro-controller application (relevant for hardware accelerators).

What do you think about it?
