I agree with Neil 100% I'm already paying "high dollar" to purchase
hardware off eBay, etc., because, as a fan of the CoCo, I see the value in
owning the vintage hardware, I'm pretty sure fans would also (hopefully)
see the value in modern hardware and software that extends and enhances the
life of their CoCos.

I had come up with the suggestion, after seeing that Farhfall came on a
cartridge, and also had a custom controller, that, even things like "deluxe
packages" (bundles) could be available.

In particular, I'd be happy to purchase a cartridge, that I would keep
sealed and unopened, if there was a digital/virtual copy as well I could
play on an emulator or put on the CoCoSDC, etc.

Great suggestion, and I'm in full agreement with financially supporting
people who are putting time and energy into worthwhile CoCo products and
