You're right. I tried a quick-and-dirty patch of calls to the IO Kernal
routines, and found non-standard things going on for straightforward loads.

I admit there are a lot of issues to address that I haven't yet addressed.
I'm not too worried about object proliferation (at this point), since there
are ways to try to combat it, but then again I am only toe-deep into this.

Thank you very much for responding, Ralph. As much as I would like to see
an IEC bus on the FC64, I find its implementation tedious to the extreme,
and wish there were an elegant solution.
