That wasn't the discussion at hand: it was asserted that Dolphin is "unlikely" to support networking because he thought the GC didn't have it.
I'd be surprised if the Au1500 wasn't dead easy to HLE though - the entire reason you have a separate CPU do that job is so it appears to the main CPU as an easy HLE type of packet stream.
