I would also like to get some functional parts.  I'm likely to try
4116s for the RAM (which I have in abundance) and I don't mind using a
newer CPU, but the shift registers are mondo expensive.  I haven't
come up with a functional substitute yet.  I suppose I could steal the
technique of Vince Briel's Replica 1 and just put a fast MPU tapped
into the furthest point upstream in the video circuit and emulate that
bit (he used a Propellor)

I am never going to have a photo-exact period replica but I'd like to
have something that works that didn't cost hundreds of dollars for 5-6
