Heh - my notebook runs warm whenever simh sits idle at the (guest OS)
console prompt. I want it to run cooler.

It might just happen to not work well with NetBSD cpu stats sampling, or
there might be a bug - I haven't investigated more closely. top shows
one cpu 100% busy, but that may be a missampling.

Anyway, I just wondered why it did not use blocking io and threads, and you
answered that - looking forward to newer versions.
