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 
so good!
