 I believe that the issue is with the memory being larger than what can be 
saved on a 180K diskette.

 What was that software that used the 64K bank switching to enable us to use 
several disk basic events in a task switching environment in a 512K machine?
 I may have the details wrong, but the way I remember it, this program 
allowed up to eight copies of disk basic to run concurrently on a 512K 
 I'm sure it was slow.
