But there already is the Commavid Magicard which you can program with
the Atari keypad controllers. It offers you a full 768 bytes of RAM to
put your code into (plus 256 bytes which are used for the display buffer
by the monitor program, but are free to use after your program has taken
over control). But 768 bytes is quite a lot, if you have to type it in
as hexadecimal data with the keypads. ;-)

It should be possible to write a Magicard like hex entry thing for the Supercharger and allow up to 4K of RAM. But of course that's a torturous way to program, and no way to save.

It should also be possible to write level editor type stuff for the Supercharger, if someone wanted to write games like Lode Runner for it.
