It's also mostly access to the required hardware. I was going to buy
Jochen Hassler's SGC but so far he wasn't able to find it! :-( Hope it
turns up in a box sometime.

I do have a QXL that was kindly donated to me 10 years ago or so, but
I don't really see much point in maintaining it.

The latest I have found in a quick search is 2.93. I probably have
older ones at least partly on some floppy discs. But the thing is 2.92
was the introduction of the Q40 and if I remember correctly this was
such a major change in the sources that comapring 2.91 and 2.91 will
not result in much more enlightnment.

I will help once I get my hands on the hardware, but this can take a
while. And while I find the offers very kind I don't want to work on
loaned hardware, sorry.
