That's a wild idea.  I didn't know they could do that.  Is the data
for "1:" entwined with the drive's normal firmware, or is it in, say,
a separate ROM that could be changed?

Given how large EEPROMs are these days, even DIP parts, in addition to
all the projects to, say, hang an IDE hard drive off of the board from
a 1541, it might be interesting to hang a bank of FLASH chips (or a CF
socket?) off of a 1541 board for a ROM drive.
