ITS outlives Multics?!

TOPS-10 and TOPS-20 both support 30-bit address spaces (although the KL
CPU only allows 23).  Having written a large program using 30-bit addressing,
I can assure you it isn't as kludgy as its detractors claim, and certainly a
lot cleaner than some of the current faddish architectures.

I'm sure some bright hacker could figure out how to convert ITS to 30-bit
addressing.
