I have a date for when this feature was announced for ITS.  The previous
.CBLK UUO could not access files.

RMS 09/30/73 10:13:28  JOBS! BE FIRST IN YOUR TREE TO INSERT A DISK FILE PAGE!
SEE .INFO.;CORBLK ORDER FOR DETAILS.

(This is now redirected to COFF.)

In related news: A rather complete full dump of the MIT-AI PDP-10 from
1971 has been found.  It includes full source code and documentation for
the system, including ITS version 671, DDT, TECO, MIDAS, (MAC)LISP,
CHESS (MacHack), MUDDLE, LOGO, MACSYMA, etc.

Is it (going to be) available online?

I hope so, eventually.  But it may be a lengthy process through MIT's
legal departments.
