Yes, that's the way to go!  They (4.6 and 5.0) should be "equivalent"
with each other -- Everything other than the VM and new restrictions
(i.e., 64K restriction) would be the same.  That way external apps can
"port" to being Spur-compatible without worrying about any other
functionality gaps between the two images causing problems.
