Default Re: INS8073 - What I wanted, but never got.

Yes, Wirewrap was quite common in the days of Eurocard prototyping, these separate square pads boards being designed for it, and I still often used to type with contnous ground plane grid on the top.
Quite reminiscent of the original NS PMOS ISP-8A/500 (SC/MP-I) Introkit Keyboard + Display interface teleprinter-alternative, where this kit came with instructions on how to assemble it with wire-wrapping.

Quite novel to put all the passives on headers, in case they altering.
I've always fitted these with leads adjacent to where they connected, and bent lead onto adjacent pad, but not as neat and makes changing things more difficult.
