A T-11 was easier and fewer issues.

The biggest issue with T/F/J-11 is that all IO is RBW (read before
write, even if read is not used)
making IO difficult.  This is solved by DEC by reading one address and
writing another.  For S100
 doing IO you create BBS7 (bank select 7, logical or of high order 3
bits) as IO/ROM space
and munge the IO address for read and write to be offset for a given target.
