FWIW, while it was never on the official HCL, NEXTSTEP will run on a
Voyager; I think NeXT actually demo'ed NS/SPARC on Voyagers on a few
occasions. Not sure why it never made it onto the actual HCL.

Back when a TurboColor was my primary desktop, the thought of NS on a
Voyager got me hot'n'bothered. In a good way.
