[Coco] PS-2 Mouse on CoCo

Both the Amiga and Atari ST use a "quadrature" mouse. I.e. thay have four
outputs to the computer two for horizontal motion, two for vertical.
It is much easier to use a serial mouse on a coco, especially under
NitrOS9/OS-9, since drivers are already in place for using them.
Since a number of PS/2 mice come with a 9-pin serial adaptor, wouldn't it
just be a software issue to make them work on the coco's RS232 pak?
