so, basically this will hold umpteen ROm module images, alow us to produce "rom module" images that are writable, and include the maximum extended memory (???)
what I see is a need to be able to plug in 2 modules along with this for some applications- HPIL and printer.
(Of course, I would like to be able to use a card reader at the same time, myself.)
the best thing to do might just be to duplicate the shape of the top 1/3 or 1/4 of the 41 itself, modify the base part of that to accept he same hold down clips as the card reader, and fabricate those for housings.
Making a single one from stock, by hand, would take some hours and be fun, but harldy acceptable as a method for producing a few dozen.
The shape is, or should be, regular enough to make it feasible to produce a form and bend some 22 gauge sheet.
Probably easier to use card reader housings- or maybe IR printer housings. Shame to waste the card readers, though :)
