But i guess there were some HD1440 models sold, isn't it. I think it makes
sense to support them if possible. Ideally would be to have a warning when you
choose this option that you need 1.4MB floppies support, or else we will get a
lot of complaints about why the floppy method don't work.

I don't know if it is possible to enable such a per subarch warning (altough
it may be common the the m68K/amiga folk).
