I still think you can get the 2600 to generate a properly interlaced
display.  Start your 3 lines of VSYNC in the _middle_ of a scanline, which
will cause the second field to be delayed vertically by half a scanline,
and then if you do a total of 525 lines across the two fields, it should
be properly interlaced.  I wish I had some time to try this myself...
