Only weird viz-a-viz the "usual" baudrates, like 19200, 38400, 57600,
etc. For local networks, anything is a go. But I'm not sure whether
a PC, if used as a host, could accommodate anything like 31250. Depends
upon the internal clocks and USART h.w.

The scenix s.w. VP could probably be massaged to accommodate both 31250
and 38400, for example, if you try hard enough. 50Mhz/38400 = 1302 and
50Mhz/31250 = 1600.
