Okay. But in the meantime we could merge the mac68k/next68k/mvme68k/x68k
versions (which are all very similar). And perhaps, separately, merge
the amiga/atari versions.
The places where, eg., cached-writeback handling are different make me
wonder if thats worth doing. Are those differences well understood?
