Weeeellllll yes.
 OK I was totally wrong! A for effort to Sun for that PAL MMU thing! 
I assumed ;) that "Motorola 020 systems" meant the proprietary Suns as well.
alas, as thousands of MAC-II systems had the jumpered MMU. Which Apple sold
MMUs to those needing them.
 also the amiga 2620 (14mhz020/451 4meg ram) accellerator board for the A2500 ( runs
Amiga UNIX!) could be upgraded with the jumperplug and 030 adapter that
CSA sold (another model of which fit the MAC-II).
