I know that a lot of people have concerns about an emulator being
possible due to the number of processors that have to be emulated, but
one only has to look as far as the Mame emulator to see that is not so
big a deal. The real problem will be finding the information to figure
out what each component really has to do, since Multics was a study in
how to get things working even if it was not working so well.
Not exactly the approach that can be used for IBM hardware used where
one just has to have access to the POO and you can get an emulator
pretty much going.
