Traditionally, RS232 was implemented on PETs with either an IEEE488
box (I have a couple) or a board that piggybacks into a ROM socket
and taps R/W from somewhere (I have an ACIA board like that, too).

I was unaware of that page 'til now.  It's a good page that could stand
some more info (and maybe some additional organizing), but I don't think
