ISTR something about keeping "an old, sourceless, Zork binary" running.
That would have been 4.3BSD, I'm guessing?  Or perhaps my wetware
memory is bitrotting?

I could add PDP-11 mode to my KA630 simulator and then add support for
it to NetBSD, so that if/when an FPGA version exists there'll be a
little more software ready for it.
