Ah, ok. I thought hardware modifications and the burst mode were 
involved. How about Dolphin DOS, Professional DOS and all the other?
Does any of these use burst mode, and possibly can't be used at the
same speed with the VIC?

I already knew the deal with VIC-II, UI- and the other issues, which
in practise makes the VIC 25% faster with normal transfer mode.
