Hardware pause switch mod

I was randomly browsing my mags the other day and I stumbled on this mod. It's in CU Amiga, Sept 1992, p26

It's supposed to be "easy" to do, and make your Amiga pause at any time, at the press of an external button.

I find it interesting because I've never heard of such thing before. Has anybody attempted to make one, or seen it in action?

Sort of works, but many things may mess up after you unpause, as it only halts the CPU, but the custom chips will keep running..

I had this on my A500 (or was it on the A2000?) back in the day - worked fairly well, as far as I remember.
