I'd find an OS-9 port to the SuperPET an interesting project.  Just a note 
there is a working SuperPET within the Chicago Classic Computing group. 
I'm sure if we aske Jack nicely he might be convinced to tote it out to 
CoCoFest for examination.

Any clue how OS-9 might handle the odd memory switching to get at the 
extra 64K?  I'm not sure if memory mapping works differently in 6809E
