    But ... (vainly attempting to pass the buck) a certain Phil Greenspun
    came over to the UK to have a hack on our 3600 in about 1983.  It was his
    assertion that the original intention had been to have a wee unix
    processor available in the 3600 console. 

"Intention" is much too strong a word.  However, the idea was certainly
discussed.  Mostly it was in jest at the high degree of overkill involved,
but people did discuss what one might DO with a unix in ones' console.
