If I remember correctly, the driving paddles are actually rotary encoders. So CO10802 isn't just a rotary switch, but actually has one or two small discs inside it which will generate a 4-bit sequence (quadrature output, I think it's called). By looking at the sequence, one can determine which direction the device is turning. Looking at the schematic, only 2 of those pins are used to generate the sequence..

I remember seeing some sample source code somewhere for using the driving controllers somewhere in the Stella archives.. Maybe Bob Colbert's Stell-a-Sketch source..

Before you ask, I think CO10802 is just a standard rotary switch.
