Great, thanks for the files! The IMP file indeed matches the file that
has once been contributed by a Mega-ST user. So the difference is
really not ST vs. Mega-ST, but IMP vs. Ricoh! Would be interesting to
know whether Ricoh chips have still been used for Mega-STs, or if all
Megas were already shipped with an IMP chip...

Thanks for the offer, but I think that's not necessary right now.
