I agree, that if you put another 3 cycles in there, you would not need the
STA WSYNC.  As to using the STA WSYNC as you describe, I would do a test
before trusting it.  I can concieve this STA WSYNC as holding until the
end of the following line, just as well as working as you describe.  Has
anyone filled a line like this?
