The problem with a lot of this "source code" is that it's resourced.

There's a big difference between source code that was originally written by the programmer, and a disassembled version.

The only Amigas which "MUST" be recapped are those who have developed a fault due to a bad capacitor (or if it was installed backwards from the factory).
