I really did want to do that, but the target hardware is PDT-11/150, my
only system with working 8" floppies, and it can't support a big disk
(though it just occurred to me I could probably fake similar situation with
a TU-58 emulator and new sysgen!).

If I can get one of my bigger PDP-11s the ability to talk to floppies, then
sure.  Been trying, but don't know if that'll ever happen with things going
the way they are :\

Actually this TU-58 emulator idea is starting to seem like a fun stunt..
Three serial ports on these PDT-11/150s, plus modem and console, so I could
have lots of "larger," if slow (I think 2400 is the limit), storage devices
on the ol' gal.

Thanks for making me think, Nigel!
