Thanks Nikolai, noted with thanks. However at the moment- for reasons 
related to other things I've got on the boil- I'm trying to limit myself 
to machines that I've actually got in my "museum". I've got SGI although 
only running IRIX at the moment, little-endian hardware remains a 
problem and in practical terms I'm not sure I can put very much more 
effort into it.
