Well, to be specific, the interviewee was talking about something that
is networking-specific on System 7.5, which implies pre-7.6 and thus
pre-Open Transport. IIRC 7.6 is also the first release that requires
32-bit clean ROMs -- 7.5 and earlier didn't.

So it sounds like a legitimate misunderstanding, probably via
over-zealous editing.
