Unfortunatly I don't remember where I read that for sure, and I'm not 100%
sure it's the Dragonball, but the Dragonball sounds like the right follow
on processor. I think I read it in the TEAM Amiga Mailing list, in one of
Dave Haynie's posts, but like I said, I don't remember.

However, I think even some of the 68040 and 68060 series chips don't have
all the instructions of earlier processors. We got any 68k pro's around
