I'd like to archive a copy of all (both?!?) the versions I have, just to
keep the bits from fading away.  Only trouble is, I only have one, suspect,
TK70 tape.  If I had ole' Betsy booting into NetBSD, I'd just dd an image of
the tape and reuse it each time, but she don't, and I dunno if it's even
possible to make a bit-for-bit copy of anything under VMS.
