Ummm....  I'd just like to point out here that if I was intending to put
PDP-11 Unix to any meaningful use (which *would* be a terrible thing to 
do to myself) I'd just run an emulator on one of my other computers.  What
I'm looking for here is a project I can kill some of my weekends on.  I
was thinking eventually I could wire the /usr/games/chess up to my web
page so people could "Play a game of chess with the PDP-11!", you know, as
kind of a freak show act....
