I wonder if the co-pro was a side effect of Acorn looking for a 
worthwhile RISC chip for their new range of processors?

Cute piccy on Wiki, a 32016 with four little heatsinks on it.
Strange, I thought the hard work happened in the gold lump. Must have 
metal lugs or something in the ceramic to dissipate the heat to the 
heatsinks. Also odd there isn't one directly on the gold lump.

Pure BASIC, or with assembler?
