This brings up a thought I've had -- has anyone contemplated an attempt
to "complete" the unfinished, existing 2600 games (the only ones that
come to mind are Xevious, which is available in a couple forms, and
Tempest, which is not (yet) available to the general collector)  What would
be involved in this?  Is it beyond the "average" programmer we have here?
(No offense meant to anyone -- I am aware that there are possibly some
programmers here that actually wrote for the 2600)
