Does anyone remember the "Rabbit" PET tape format?  I have a Rabbit ROM,
a Rabbit tape (it loaded at $7800), and a box of Rabbit-ized PET software.
I used to use it exclusively when I was 13.  Unfortunately, I do not have
a description of the format and may have to reverse engineer it from the
object code.  Not impossible, but a right royal pain in the arse and very
time consuming.

AFAIK, it was faster because of a different bit pattern/frequency and no
redundant blocks.

Using the TAPEIO.EXE program that comes with C64S (yes, I paid real money
just to get a de-taper), I have already dumped all of my ordinary tapes,
but not my Rabbit tapes.
