I like your VHD image quite a bit! I spent a day going through it,
trying different things out.

I sorted through the Color Computer Archive fairly quickly, and found a
lot of alternative disks included in some of the archives. I didn't want
throw them out without knowing how they differ, so I renamed some of
them with "A" at the end until they can be tested. This image really is
something of a rough draft.

I'd love to include it. There is a treasure trove of content there. In
the README where I mention including NitrOS9 images in the future, your
image was the first to come to mind. I'd like to include a convenient
way to flash the HDBDOS image there, too.
