Thanks for that, and I have the ideal number in mind, the 6309 is a clone 
of the 6809, until you flip a couple bits in an un-acknowledged control 
register.  Then it pipelines the instruction fetch, saveing a cycle, and 
grows a few more registers and instructions, some of which support 32 
bit data. Net result being that the os, rewritten to take advantage, 
Nitros9, which used to be os9, is nearly 2x faster, at the same old 
clock speed.

I've enough examples of Murphy around here already. :(

Thanks for clarifying that, Jonathan.
