Indeed.  I brought up real hardware because that is the foundation of
my knowledge of RJE but I wasn't intending to propose that as a
solution.  I've been describing a way to tackle this problem with
emulation, including having to write an emulator for a DEC sync serial
board since that part is nowhere to be found right now.

That's definitely cool, and I see they have the 4381 connected to the
CDC Cyber 175 via HASP.  That's definitely the link to inspect for
implementation details.
