Sure it will, it's just more work to implement it for a D64. There is
nothing magical about a container format, it's just data structured to
follow certain conventions which are simpler for a T64 file than for a

That would reduce the loading time for the main program slightly, but
subsequenz loads still wouldn't be accelerated. If the program doesn't
load any data after that point just convert a one-filer version to T64
and use the DMA feature for that.
