S-100 power supply voltage ranges

There is/was an IEEE standard for the S-100 bus; why not hew to that, 
regarding supply voltages?

If I were designing new "retro" boards today, however, I'd go with 
one of the switching regulators that can be had in TO-220 packages.  
Basically the same appearance as the veneered and generated 7805, but 
far more efficient.

Cheers,
Chuck
