I’ll be posting the Sub-Etha Software MultiBASIC product in the near future. It was a simple and clever way to make use of more than 32K in BASIC. I don’t have the source, but I doubt there was too much code to it so reverse engineering it should be doable. Maybe we can make it a tool for all these BASIC programmers who want to write big programs on their machine, 128K, 512K or beyond if we can update MBASIC.

Of course the BASIC program itself is still limited to the area below 32K without major modifications. Other relatively simple patches could open up other possibilities.
