More developer mumbo jumbo ;-)

Anyway, the REx does register 'extr' etc. serial ports, which is why the ROM can't add its own ports anymore. The REx ports are in the name registry, but not the serial port registry, so they will always trigger 'resource not found'. By renaming the REx's serial port name to something else, the ROM port *will* now register, which is great, but it will then hang in a loop at a much later point in time, just before the end of the boot procedure.

This bears two questions:

Why is the serial port accessed at the end of the boot process, but before the User Interface is up?

Will emulating the hardware be enough to get out of that loop, and - at a later point - make the serial port work?
