I've just found a good use for the envelope slot - printing directly
on the paperboard inserts for SDLT tapes (modern 110/220GB descendant
of TK50). We go through about 150 tapes a year for our data... I
wanted to have printed inserts at the front of the cartridge, and
the pre-perfed ones that come with the carts are about the size of
an envelope...

Working out the raw Postscript to define the bizarre page size was the
hardest part.
