I use the same stuff when using my selfbuilt computer as disk drive 
for the C64, to access the internal drive numbers: "0" is devices,
"1" is ROM, "2" is the 3.5" PC disk, "3" the 5.25" PC disk etc. 

Here I found it convenient to have a "a0:4" assign command that reroutes
all access to drive "0" to the drive "4". You don't know how
many utilities use "$0" or so...

Just my EUR 0.02
