   Actually, there isn't any active work on this, and it would be extremely
   useful.  Is there anyone who can work on it?  With a little bit of
   creativity, you should be able to work on this w/o a BSD system.

Actually, I've been thinking of the stuff for a while.

But I have some problem to get the literature I need.  I guess all I
need is _Programmer's Reference Manual_ (or M68000PM/AD by their doc#)
but Motorola's phone numbers I have don't seem to work for me...

I tried all their Literature Distribution Center (602-994-6561/
800-521-6274) and University Support Program (602-952-3855) numbers
but noone there seemed to want to answer my call in a reasonable
amount of time, and the 800 line was always busy.

If any one of you know better ways to reach them or
bookstores/whatever in NYC/NJ area who carry and sell the manual,
I really appreciate your help.

Btw, please help me when I actually get to work on it, because I
definitely will have difficulties to write codes to handle FPU related
exceptions.  The calculation part is a bunch of bit operations, so
it's not the hardest part, I guess.
