I've still got a 3000-400 and 3000-300X here that I can at least use to
compile the code occasionally. By preference, I've got my NetBSD disk installed
in an AS 200 4/100.
I'm not too keen to do new work on the turbochannel range, but I'd like to
see at least non-graphic support for these machines remain.
