When the program compiles, I'm leaning toward providing both
at once, a .bin for testing and a dasm-compilable .lst whose
comments are the original .bas program, for those who want
to tweak in assembler.  Of course, getting it to compile anything
at all comes first.  I've been defining data structures, and yikes.
It's going to be quite a bit of work.

Still, if I was looking for easy projects I guess I wouldn't be
