I remember that I had sound problems if the strobe was not checked.
Simply dumping that I/O port may have sideeffects. I'd prefer not to
have audio/YM regressions just because of changing the printer output
handling within psg.c

I agree that the backend behind the I/O port should be much simpler, esp
to enable piping to a socket or so, to enable direct print on a CUPS
device or so.
