A 2 letter mnemonics is less programming and therefore less ROM. But I only 
use this argument because I'm a lazy programmer :)

I understand you want to mix FAT and D64. I meant this idea as an extension 
of X-IDE V0.3 where the 1541 sees the harddisk as one single floppy and 
nothing more. The idea is to use the CD (or C-I) command in the first place 
to change the "floppy", nothing more and nothing less. In this way users 
can at least already make use of the real capacity of a harddisk, although 
in a bit primitive way. IMHO this is better then to wait for a FS that 
still can take months.
