Calling int TFLApp::UserActionPCCard(int inSlot, long inIndex) inserts
and removes PCMCIA cards from a predifined list in the desktop version.
int TPlatformManager::InsertPCCard(KUInt32 inSLot, TPCMCIACard* inCard)
handles the card action.
The TPCMCIACard class is created using the constructor
TLinearCard::TLinearCard(const char* inImagePath) and linking it to a
.pccard file in the file system.
The .pccard file contains the PCCard memeory contents, followed by the
Card Information Structure, followed by a name given by the user. The
last few words are a table of contents, pointing to the previously
mentioned blocks (all defined in TLinearCard.h

The correct way would be to branch. It's a git functionality, and you
should be able to create a branch from master or matt2020. Once your
branch works well, create a Pull Request. We can use the pull request to
merge your changes back into master or matt2020.

We will! ;-)
