I've changed nothing at all really as far as 2.11 goes.  Worked just 
dandy even before my hacking.

The complexities of begemot, and the relative ease of use of Supnik
was the driving force behind my sticking it out with Supnik.   I figured
I'd make it do what I want, since I could make it work in the first place.
Since I'm into the actual hardware emulation, as well as device drivers,
it is fulfilling my need here until I ever get a real PDP-11 again.
