I would not think so, but I don't want to speak for others.

Just a point to note: changing the switches to return the correct values will 
cause EmuTOS to detect the presence of an HD floppy drive, so it will act 
differently when accessing the floppy.  That may show up other issues with 
floppy handling in EmuTOS or Hatari.  Since I don't attempt to keep my copy of 
the Hatari source current, it would be helpful to know when the change is made 
so I can update my copy of Hatari.
