I think I would agree with Brett on this.  Another point:  When you 
think about how most people will be using their CoCo 3 or CoCo3FPGA when 
connecting to the internet, most people these days use WiFi especially 
with portable or small form factor devices.  Part of the concept is to 
get our computers 'untethered' from either a host computer running 
Drivewire or from a physical  ethernet cable connecting them to the 
internet.  So I lean toward making it work without cables.
