Some proprietary changes seemed to have a purpose: early SCSI vs DSSI,
others just seem in hindsight arbitrary and annoying: MMJ and goofy SCSI

As others have mentioned, the 68 pin connector was pinned out funny.

However, the machine has two scsi busses, how about a 50 pin internal
cable attached to SCSI A and to your drive...does this cause errors, too?
