This is again how screwed up Apple is. See in 7.5.3 Apple programmers who
work mostly on 800's and 840 AV's re-wrote the caching for the 030/040
machines. So my little 950 (ok it's clocked to 50 mhz with a 128k cache) is
as fast on everything but rendering as a 8100/80 due to the amount of 68K
code in the OS.

So anyone with a 68K machine suddenly got a new lease on life. CyberDog is
NOT phat. There is no 68K version. So Apple is again shooting themselves in
the foot by keeping their wonderful warez out of 80% of the Mac users hands.
