And will probably run about as fast as the original 32016! Running some of
my old fractal stuff on the Master 128 with an internal Turbo co-pro, versus
BAS32 on an external 32016, didn't seem very different. With big number
sets, it may have been faster. The same stuff on Sprow's ARM runs at a much
higher speed.

On the topic of 32016's - does anyone know of a hack/mod for post Y2K PANOS?
