ISTR having run 7.2 briefly on an 11/785 (to troubleshoot an install
problem with 6.2), and while I didn't do much with it, it did come up and
run.  And I've used 7.2 quite a bit on 3100-series machines with minimal
RAM.  Granted, I didn't try to do anything resource-intensive, but I did
run the machines over serial.  -- Ian
