This program is DANGEROUS! If you will comment the code and make it easily
recyclable then LOTS of games could be written around it...! :-)

BTW, could you explain shortly how the non-kernel part works?
I bet that you sort the y-coordinates and build a table of flags that say
which sprites collide... but when there's a collision, how do you decide
which "colliding" sprite must be drawn in the next frame?

Also, how much RAM does the algorithm need? There must be some arrays...
