Thank you very much for the info: it's exactly what somebody is going to 
need to know. I have quoted it on the wiki, so it doesn't get lost.
Not being a developer here (ASF or OOo), I'm just trying to make sure 
that stuff doesn't fall through the cracks.

I'm a bit out of date as a developer; what assembly language is all this 
stuff in? I know a lot of them: RCA 501, 301; IBM 7090, 1401, 360; CDC 
6000; even 8080 and 6502. Those desktop dinky-toys are cute, but they'll 
never amount to anything. ;-)
