When I first heard about this RAMcart idea I kept my mouth shut, but for
4K, sheesh, what's the point?  With a Supercharger you get 6K to work with
and multiload capability.  No hacking or interface programming necessary. 
Why reinvent the wheel when the SC does it as well as you could expect? 
And even though it's a sound interface, the load times aren't that bad
because the filesizes are so small. 

I wouldn't bother creating a RAMcart unless it sports at least 16K, more
like 64K SRAM.
