Perhaps you could design it to co-exist with certain assembler programs
like TASM or whatever you c64 people tend to use.  Store the makewav
code at $2000 or $4000 or something, have the user load it as a binary 
from the assembler, as if it were a font or something.  Then the user 
would program for $1000-$1FFF and everything, but set the start address
to where the 'charger code begins.  After compiling, the 'charger code
would bring up a little menu so the user can prepare the 2600 and play
the wav and whatever.

You can quote mine, though I don't know which are applicable.
