I received my 2 ARGUS cards a week ago and finally found time during the weekend to solder everything.
What can I say: both cards are working, even though my soldering skills are not good at all.
I am really happy!

Thanks a lot to shock!

Adding ram to the Reveal WAVExtreme 32 is likely possible, but would involve a lot of manual rewiring in a data path that might be slightly timing critical - I wouldn't bother with that.
Even tho there are no concrete plans for the open run yet, I can quite surely say that I don't intend to sell the PCBs _without_ InterWaves. No need to salvage cards when I still have stock left. Also keep in mind that transplanting QFP160 is not trivial (i've successfully done so in the past, but it's not what I'd call enjoyable).

I'm still interested whenever you feel ready to go ahead with a larger run. I agree with your point about soldering the QFP160, that's a bit too hard for most people. I'm moderately good at soldering, but I hate soldering large QFP chips. If you've got a stencil or you're good at drag soldering, it's best that you do it.

well those qfps were baked onto the cards in an oven, so they will come off and on the same way, hot air and lots of flux.

Simply requires the proper tools.
