Compute module pi clock?

In principle, the Raspberry Pi compute module is the thing you're supposed to use to embed into projects like the clock. I've done a little bit of looking at it, and in theory it is possible to design a board that would accept a compute module instead of a pi zero w. There are a couple of fairly big problems with the idea, however.

The nice thing about such a beast is that (with the CM3) it would have the same CPU performance as a Pi 3, but the actual benefit of that for the purpose of the clock is questionable at best.
