	If we are voting, here are some other candidates::

	1) not using a 68008 in the tre (backwards compatability - who needs 
that? could they have put a 6809 in a cart that could have itself had 
rompaks plugged into it?)
	2) not using some of the fancier wires on the 6809
	3) the cm-8 - we deserved better
	4) tre should have had a switching PS
	5) sloppy peripheral decoding (using 32 precious addresses when 4 would do)
