Oh, I do sympathise :-) Remember the Apple Network Server that I was trying
to get parity FPM for? $500 for 64MB.

I'm going to throw in the towel and just stick non-parity in it. That's what
everyone seems to be doing these days with ANSes. But I would really love
that extra security that parity affords, unless someone wants to convince me
that parity is not all that useful in memory? (I'd love to be convinced since
you will save me around $300.)
