I believe that a DPS-6 is a GE635 less a bit - in particular the hardware
mechanism (it's been a long day and I can't remember the Multics word for
this). My guess is that if you had a DPS-6 emulator adding the GE635 stuff
mightn't be too hard but again this is based on reading Organick's book
about 10 years ago...
