But didn't Commodore write 3.1 before they went bump?

My old 3.1 kit was made by VillageTronic.

I'm also curious as to why H&P never released 3.9 roms?

3.1 seemed more stable and faster.

The question here could be? "Why NOT upgrade to 3.1?"

Yes, except run OS3.5 or 3.9. But remember that you can softkick 3.1 if required.

The answer might be: "Because it doesn't add anything the user needs to do what they want to do."
