7800 controller buttons each send out two signals at the same time --
*BOTH* send out the signal for the 2600 button (so the controller can 
be used to play 2600 games, with both buttons working as the single
2600 button), and also a second signal, each on one of two pins, so
a 7800 can tell the difference between left and right button.
