> the 0x80 is the "standard" (as in, since the original IBM PC) one. The 81,82 came from the "more than 8 bits of status is useful" discussion we (at least Tim and myself, plus others, I can't remember, it's late) had... oh I can't remember now... but a while ago. Our bigger concern was if writing to 81,82 was going to be okay if nothing was listening.
IIRC you'll get one of those "LPC No Sync" errors, but other than that
it doesn't seem to cause any issues.
