Hm... that's quite an interesting point. but so far I've no problem
to have hundreds of DASM features that I don't know :-)

I think it'd be a more useful feature than 90% of what is already in.
I'd use it and I'd love to have it.

I'm saying that with having turned graphics more often
than I did most other nasty tasks...

It goes like: 

'Hey, reversing that loop would enable me to...'


'Ooops, didn't work out'


'But wait maybe if I try...'


and so on...

Even the most standard way would be
hacking the graphics in the right order,
and reversing them when finished.

So that feature definitely gets my vote, as well as the 
idea for a special graphics format in general.

If someone fears a feature overkill in DASM, I can point
out enough other useless stuff that can be removed
in exchange for these two brill things.

What's that REPEAT/REPEND stuff worth for example?
If you're using it, you're already doing something
dead wrong... :-)
