rjek: They wouldn't need to do everything that select can in every case to be a big benefit, would they?

In the IFR example, if there were a dummyIFR module that made a non-select machine appear the same as a select machine, but hardwired to non alpha sprites, that would still be of benefit.

If a reasonable number of programs started using it, ROL could sell the system to Iyonix users. (Or someone else would duplicate it if they didn't)
