    Contrary to floppy disks, microdrive cartridges storage capacity is varying in the real life, because differences in the length of the tape in different cartridges.

    So we can emulate this. We can specify the size of new inserted cartridges (F1->Media->Interface 1->Microdrive X->Insert New) with:

    • --mdr-len XXX -> define the size in blocks (10-254) - average real capacity is around 180 block (90 Kb)
    • --mdr-random-len -> Fuse randomly choose the capacity of the new cartridge around 180 block...
    • we should delete the other three options

    --mdr-len and --mdr-random-len options documented in [ab4363]

    --raw-rs232 option has null type, so it's not accepted from command line and ignored in settings files.

    The removal of --raw-s-net and --snet options would need a cleanup in if1 code.
