As long as the module is *passive*, i.e. a pure ROM, this
should not be too difficult. Some modules have additional
hardware in it, though; obviously the Card Reader ROM (which might still work for its "7XXX" emulation commands, though),
the HPIL module, the Time module, the Wand module, the
IR printer module, and the HEPAX module, to name the most
For the PPC module, I am wondering though, whether it is
so attractive to have a replica in ROM - the code in there is not MCODE, but user code; so you could load the most
attractive things into user memory (I did this with MK and LB, for instance, until I had more powerful commands from the CCD module). From this point of view, it is meanwhile
outdated, and more a collector's item, and as such, one would of course not accept a copy.
