I started such a project a while back, and grad school intervened.  :-)
But with all this interest, I'll see if I can't disinter my MINC and try it
again.  I'm pretty sure I have these packages and a lot more, and I really
need to get them imaged of RX02s before the oxide starts falling off.  :-)

I have a MINC-11, but I put an 11/23 processor in it - 18-bit addressing,
though, and I DO want to keep it stock so I'm not going to modify the
backplane for 22-bit addressing, as much as I'd like that extra working
store space!
