Re: Support for 4KB sectors size disk ?

What about <512?  They exist; I have a floppy drive which I've been
carefully hoarding because it has 256-octet blocks, the only device
with <512-octet blocks I've ever seen (and it's SCSI, the only SCSI
floppy drive I've ever seen, but that's irrelevant to this thread).

Do we (FWVO "we") want to bother with such devices?
