Now I *LIKE* that idea ! I would imagine that with 6809 code being
generally more efficient than 6502, it could cirtainly be done, no I'm
not volunterring to do it :)
It would be actually 2 things, re-writing the MOS rom, and then
re-writing the Basic rom, that is alas 32K of code to re-write :(
On the other hand disn't someone produce a 6809 2nd processor for the
BBC, that cirtainly should be capable of running Nitros.
