Rumor has it that Vintage Computer Festival may have mentioned these words:

Yup -- otherwise oxymoronically known as a Zero-Ohm Resistor.

Depending on the clearance you may have on the board, you could desolder
that and solder in a 2-post terminal block and use a jumper (shunt) if it's
close enough, or if not you could wire-wrap the posts if you wanted to more
easily change the circuit path.

Other than that, however, you're waaaay outta my league... ;-)
