Actually, the Supercharger doesn't seem all that necessary... 16k looks
like it'll fit pretty much the whole thing, and I really don't see
more than the 128 bytes of RAM, or the 256 available with a Superchip
at the most.  Possibly I'll do a sequel with the Supercharger, using much
of the same kernel.

I don't have the Stella CD :)  I'm thinking along the lines of the
routine used in "Dark Mage" by whoever it was a little while back on this
list... was that type of thing on the CD?
