I fully understand. Not everything is easily tweaked to fit into those
frameworks. When I wrote my two minicomputer emulators I couldn't see
how on earth I could get that working inside simh without increasing
the work needed ten or fifty times. There wasn't anything there that
would help me for what I had in mind.
