If anyone's keeping score, the 128MB SIMM arrived and it is working. The only
problem: it's too tall to clear the heatsink on the 68040 by a few mm. I ran
it without the heatsink for a few minutes just to test and it wasn't getting
particularly hot, but I expect I'll need to rig up a smaller heatsink from my
box of bits. Especially before I ask it to chew on pkgsrc again. But, so far
