I was really appealing to some of the IBM lurkers on this list to set us
straight
(there are several) but the silence is deafening. Speaks volumes maybe?

I'm not sure, but I think all of our IBM folks are software people who aren't
intimately involved with the hardware.  I would expect the FPU software switch
to be set in the MULIC code, so that the marketing folk could change it on a
model-by-model basis on whatever whim they might have about it.  I'll be
surprised if we have any lurkers from whichever group does that stuff.
