I think on SDRAM it would be doable, but i can't see anyone putting in the
effort as you have to get all the state machines right, and then you have
to convince the BIOS you're not really there.

In an earlier life I did design 2 different NICs for DRAM slots, and it
was not hard. But that was before SDRAM and its complexities.
