This says the Superfoonly was designed. Doesn't say it was actually
built. Triple-I funded the construction of the updated design, the F1.
"The original superfoonly was designed at Stanford, on an ARPA
contract, but Dave Poole, Phil Pettit, and Jack Holloway. There was
also a fourth whose role (I think) was to build the CAD system which
was used for the design. He later went to work for DEC. DEC took the
foonly design and lobotomized it, which became the KL10. The other
three came to Triple-I with a proposal to build an updated version of
the original design (using ECL instead of TTL).
