I had planned to simply let an image be a regular file, but I would allow the user to CD into the file, IN this way, R-I would simply be "SCRATCH", You could make a partition by simply saving a D64 file (though MI makes sense to auto-create an empty image), but what would CI do? Should they be simply these 2 letter mnemonics, or go with the idea of Memory-Write and be M-I, C-I, and R-I? However, from the idea perspective, I like it. I'd rather not make it too tied to the FS, since you could have a regular file on a CF disk in FAT format be a .D64 file, and you'd want the drive to allow you to use it as a disk.
