Pretty low I guess, they'd probably make them backwards compatible with bomb
proof inputs anyway.

OK, the reason I mentioned it is because it is easy to go from LVTTL to 5V
CMOS, and easy to go from LVTTL to 3.3V CMOS, but it's quite difficult to
have LVTTL inputs and to be able to select 3.3V or 5V CMOS outputs without
fitting different chips. Interest value only really.
