This looks interesting, also as a fastloader solution to cbmlink's file
and disk transfers.  Unfortunately, there are a few issues:

- one could imagine IEEE-488 drives, which don't work (well, that's only
  an issue on the PET and CBM II machines)
- the computer code is hard-coded for the Commodore 64
- the protocol uses ATN for handshaking (other devices on the serial bus
  must be powered off)
- no support for writing files or sectors has been implemented

BTW, to reduce the memory image that needs to be loaded, I'd load the
disk drive code with the & command directly from the disk.  Has anyone
tried if it works on CMD drives?  (The command "&name" should execute
the file "&name,u" in the disk drive.)
