I was wondering if the Rabbit, with its use of the cassette port, had any
particular advantage over other software only turbo tape utils.

I have scanned+OCR'ed the Rabbit CBM64 manual. I'll put it online soon.
I have an Aprospand card expander, a Cardco Cardboard 5 cart expander, and

conjunction with some basic code.
