I was amazed by the fact that floppy access on an Amiga does *not* slow the
system either. It was merrily copying files around and everything was totally
responsive. And this was on a original, ho-hum A500.

Now, if we in the Commodore 64 world would only leverage that co-processor in
the 1541/71 to do similar tricks in places other than loaders. I want to do
something like this in the future, having it load apps while you do something
else in the background, with no (perceivable :-) performance hit.
