WHDLoad on a 68000 a500 - should I go to a 68010?

a500 - check

2MB FastRAM - check

HDD controller - check

1MB ChipRAM - check

processor - 68000 - uh oh?

With my research on WHDLoad apparently the only real issue per se with a base 68K processor is that quit keys won't work properly unless the slave is coded. The change in opcodes start with a 68010 and up.

Would it then be advisable, if one is to only use WHDLoad, to up an a500 to a 68010 for a processor? Or is the 68010's eccentricities such that even though you'd get quit keys, other things would be glitchy?

I can't find a definitive answer with my google-fu so - I go to the experts. What say ye?
