Do you have any good examples of B-series software requiring a 256K machine? 
Out the half dozen CBM-610's I sold in recent years, I have kept one 256K 
(*), but I haven't used it much. Other than for databases and similar, I 
can't start to imagine which type of program could have use of 1 MB, but on 
the other hand I know about REUs and such for the C64/128 where 1 MB isn't 
impossibly large.

(*) Has any "real" CBM-620 been confirmed, or are all upgraded 610's?
