For this we will need MiNT to somehow read current setting of PMMU and
then implement the MiNT VM/paging but preserve the original PMMU
settings (or incorporate them into the new VM algorithm). Is it possible?

If not, MiNT would have to become a real TOS replacement that would be
started as the first AUTO program and then probably rebooted again (just
like MagiC). All TSR/drivers and so on would then be loaded into MiNT.
