Having network card emulated & networking would certainly be handy,
but is it really required for it to work?

Another, pontially more interesting use-case could be running latest
Linux based Debian.  There's effort to make that work on real TT,
see the debian m68k list "/|\" and "Atari TT" threads here:

Although when I tested that on Aranym, it was maybe 10x slower
than the ancient Debian Sarge release from the Aranym page here:

But hopefully that's just a bug, not indication of general slowdown
during the years...
