Thinking, thinking... hmmm.  Makes sense, and if that's the case, it just
shows how little I know about the hardware... the article in Electronic
Design indeed uses a '030 @ 33MHz, though there's nothing about wait 
states (only about a "retry mode" of the '030).  Is 'wait states' all
there is about lower then possible processor performance, or at the
11MHz with 150ns memory such factors (if any) don't come into play?
(just curious).
