TOS 5.0, AFAIK, is based on source code of TOS 4.0x, but now it contains
many important bugfixes and surely also improvements. I guess the LineA
routines that rely on Blitter were finally ripped off so TOS 5.0 would be
an ideal candidate for accelerated Falcons and also for machines with
graphics cards.

TOS 5.0 taken from Milan board wouldn't work on AB at all. It would have
to be adapted first but if someone could use the source code of Milan TOS
it would be much easier than hacking the binary of old 4.04.
