Humm, I'm not real familiar with the details of the history behind the
IEEE floating-point standards.
By the time draft 10 came out, the programmers were probably either
working on something completely different, or were busy porting their
code to the 68K.

Ohh, you should upload the source to RTSI, then.

Motorola had lots of strange 6809 machines, and lots of strange
opertating systems running on them, supporting lots of strange
assemblers. If we're really lucky, the source might be for the
standard cross-assembler, with m4 or something reasonable.
