The goal of EOMA68 is that computers, like the one you want to make,
can be upgraded and the "old" module used somewhere else. If you are
looking for cooperation the project also involves making IO boards
like http://elinux.org/Embedded_Open_Modular_Architecture/EOMA-68/MiniEngineeringBoard
... I'm not an EE but if those 2cm are really an issue maybe you could
design the io board to go over/below the module instead of after it.

Or maybe rethink your project (with "j" ^_^, I used to make the same
typo because of the similarity with the spanish word "proyecto") to an
all-in-one computer, including the display.
