I added your code to Stella 2.0 Alpha, but made it run once per keypress
instead of continually. I was able to duplicate the Invaders double shots
and the H.E.R.O. infinite lives effect. Code checked into CVS and will
be in the next alpha release.

Out of curiosity: where did you put your code in 1.4.2? How often did
it run? Once per frame, or...?
