brew-your-own-unibus boards?

  I have two opinions on the Subject:

It depends on whether functionality is the prime goal, or actual 'form,
fit and layout' is to be maintained.

  If I was going to make Unibus (or any legacy bus) modules, I'd use a
card-edge-to-Eurocard adapter, then make all my designs on the standard
connector layout... the object being that one leaves the adapter in the
buss connector and and just works with the Eurocard format module.

  Of course there are any number of interface connecting schemes that
would fulfill this idea.

  On the Other Hand - if the goal was a 'real' Unibus module, then the
actual legacy layout would be the order of the day... that being said - I
am wondering if companies like Vector made blank and 'prototype' cards for
the various Mimis, like they did for S100, and later, PC cards...?
