woops, sorry... when I saw "from memory" I mean "as near as I can
remember from my deep dark past, Apollo keyboards spoke at 1200,e,8,1".

actually, it turns out to be simpler than I remember.
On an older model Apollo (DNxxxx, pre-HP) with the same keyboards, you
just read from port 0 at 1200,e,8,1 and it would just send you keystrokes
as ascii sequences... There's some specialness having to do with the
'alt' keys and such but I don't have any code for that nor any docs. It
should be fairly straight forward to figure out.

Wow too bad. When I was down at HMR in SanFran this spring, there was
a huge bin full of them and could probably have gotten a handfull of them
But I already had all I needed.
