Is anyone interested in an open-source replacement that would run on
KPC3+ hardware?  I happen to know where to find an HC11
cross-compiler for Linux and a GPL'ed library to get started with...

I don't have time/energy to do this myself, but perhaps a largish
group could accomplish it, perhaps with GPL'ed code thrown in from
the digi_ned and opentracker/tracker2 projects?
