I'm sorry if I missed it (I've been gone for the last few days, and have 
hurriedly caught up on the new posts), but how does the 7800 read that 
second button?  Can 2600's read the second button on 7800 sticks, and if 
not, can 2600 games _played on a 7800_ be programmed to read that extra 
button for easter eggs or what-have-ya?
