Services at eleven right?  ;-)  Generally speaking, this is a very practical
attitude Andrew.  But fact is, maybe 10 percent of 2600 games use illegal
opcodes already.  So a *clone* that can't do them is already in trouble.
Does anybody remember which game Steve Jobs worked on?  Wasn't it Breakout?
If memory serves me Breakout has an illegal opcode in it.  So maybe Thomas
is in pretty good company.
