[sebhc] HDOS source listings added to archive

If you use Adobe Acrobat to make a PDF file, you don't need a duplex
scanner.  Acrobat can scan all the odd pages (front sides), then in a 2nd
operation all the even pages (back sides) and correctly interleave them.
You would, however, want an ADF (automatic document feeder) given the size
of the project.

In this case, however, I think Steve has already done the scanning.

What resolution did you scan at?  My little HP 7300 can do double 
sided scanning, and I removed the binding from my HDOS 2.0 listings 
way back in '81.  I could try to scan it as a background job, and if 
that didn't work, maybe loan it to you for scanning?
