[Coco] Potential Dragon Market

Boisy, I have a Dragon and a lot of software for it.  Much of the 
software runs on both a Dragon and the Coco, but I'm guessing the 
software author does some ROM testing and runs the software 
accordingly.  I do have some Dragon rompacks but I've never tried them 
in my Coco.  I understand that most of the ROM routines have different 
starting addresses in the two machines.  I've had many discussions about 
conversion with an e-mail friend in GB, but nothing has been resolved yet.
