Someone built an 8-bit IDE interface for the Sinclair ZX Spectrum by
the simple expedient of throwing away the upper byte of each word. You
only got half the capacity of the medium, but the electronics were
pleasantly simple.

Might an adaptation of that principle be doable? An 8-bit IDE
interface that gave half the capacity of a largish CF card?
