Just like the *smart* fpga development program I am using.
A gizillon stupid warnings and smart ass stuff like: "You using a D 
flop/flop with preset  converting to inverted D flip/flop with clear." 
Yet at the same time don't even warn you if IT THINKS it can remove 
whole blocks of logic or warn about .CLK input to a D flip flop is missing.
Testing a CPU with a small program ROM input, and it figured it could 
"remove"stuff. IR[3..2] is stuck at 0 and removing. ARG!
