It seems possible to shorten the time to make e.g. Linux boot
floppies by combining the formatting and dd'ing from a disk image
file, using the 82078's Format with Write command. Has any thought
been given to implementing this in superformat? I think it would be
a neat addition, and would be willing to do this work if I got some
pointers describing where this would need to hook into the code,
Thanks in advance.
