I remember now that we had even mentioned this back then.. i had totally 
forgotten about it in the meantime! 
complicated hardware? I dont think an SBC is too complicated. One that a 
qbus interface could be glued onto, maybe a bit more complicated, but a 
quick and dirty implementation not so much.. now, how do we go about 
interfacing to the qbus?
