I think this is critical to achieving your goal, since it will  
significantly improve your ability to read from copy-protected disks.   
The 1541U, for example, already supports optionally enabling extra ram  
in its 1541 emulation.  I'm not sure why since you can't really use it  
for track at a time reads, but there it is.  There is at least one  
person selling new ram expansion kits for the 1541 on eBay on a  
regular basis for $19, so they are not exotic or hard to find.
