The back story here is approximately something like the PDP-7 being left
over from development of William Ninke's Graphic II display systen done
in cooperation with DEC.  There was previously a Graphic I built around
a PDP-5.  DEC later made the GT40 (aka Graphic-11) based on a PDP-11/10,
and the Graphic-15 for the PDP-15.
