On a related point, I'm assuming that NuBus support will eventually be
expended to include the nubus PowerBooks and eventually, the 52/62/53/
63xx powermac/performa machines.  If not, then you really wouldn't have to
have the gestalt value.  But it's probably better to go ahead and put that
in, rather than having to mess with it later.  :-)

Also, a correction: the NuBus machines have a 53C94 and 53CF94, not 53C96
and 53CF96 as I reported previously.  I'm not sure why I thought they used
96es.  Oops.  :-)
