Yes, that's why it would be a very good idea to build on ShapeShifter.

Yes, but that would be illegal anyway.

Since the main problem is interfacing to the hardware, normal documentation
and experience isn't likely to get you very far.
With QLem, I had to dig around a lot in the internals of the operating system.
Fortunately, QDOS fit in 48 kbyte ROM, together with SuperBASIC. The Mac ROMs
are probably at least half a Megabyte...

Anyway, I just thought I should let you all now that I've sent a new letter
to the ShapeShifter author. Hopefully, I'll at least get an answer.
