I found the answer to my original question...at least as far as running 
SWTPC 4K BASIC on an Altair 680.  You can do it.  The modifications are 
described in Kilobaud #8, August 1977.  I will put up a copy on my web site 

Every issue of Kilobaud from #7 to #12 in 1977 has an Altair 680 ad on the 
back.   Byte Mags also have a lot of Altair 680 ads on the back covers in 
1976.  I think that they were serious about the computer, as an entry level 
system.  That's just my opinion.  I was too young to know first hand.
