C-128 and Jeri board

There is alot of speculation about whether the board
will be compatible with the C-128. Have you done any
testing to see whether it works, even if only in C-64

As I see it, the only thing that would get in your way
would be the C-128 MMU. Is there anything else that
might prevent C-64 mode operation?

If the board can be made to function in C-64 mode on
the C-128, there will be no real use for the C-128
mode other than to run legacy C-128 apps. For that
reason, I think it would be sufficient to provide a
disable function which should cause your board to
'disappear' and hand the system back to the original
C-128 hardware. That would eliminate the need to
emulate all the C-128 specific logic on your board.

Does that make sense? What are your thoughts?
