3rd party HP-IB => SCSI et al disk hardware - I wonder if any of them
would consider releasing their code for the HP-IB emulation under an
Open Source, Hobbyist or Non-compete license. I wonder too whether they
have HP-IB device protocol manuals that could be scanned for bitsavers.

Looks like Bering may do Amigo, SS-80, CS-80
