And what about SECUREd files? I'm thinking of a binary program that 
ideally dumps the cartridge to e.g a single floppy disk file. I've done 
something similarly for the IBM 5110, but I'm no HP 85 expert at all.
There's quite a large HP community, I can't imagine that nobody has 
attempted that before.
