If your memory chunks are laid out after each other, you could dig
up the old ADOS 1.3 WB disk and copy "mergemem" from it.  When you
run this program two consecutive chunks will be merged to one.  I did
this for half-a-year and it mostly worked (GVP accelerators have a
bug which only may be noticed in certain bit-field ops on 16 bit
memory in paging systems).  As you don't have a GVP accelerator I think
it'll work OK.
