Hm, ok, maybe it makes sense to keep the blitter option, since a
blitter could be added to the original STs, too.

But does it really make sense to keep the RTC option? Was it possible
to solder an RTC into a plain ST/STE ? I think the RTC was only
available in the Mega machines, wasn't it? So it does not make too much
sense to provide this option for the plain ST and STE machines, too,
does it?
