Pardon me if I ask a stupid question, but If they were going to
implement a high-speed serial bus for the C64/VIC/1541's, why would
they use a device that was primarily designed for PARALLEL

It seems that a 6850/6851 ACIA would have been much more appropriate,
and would have not been such a software mess.

Just my $0.02
