Hey -- that makes perfect sense.  I guess v1.1 of my "definitive"
work will be coming along soon, as I should probably also
add some comments clarifying the coordinate system.

FYI most of the kernal documentation was already there when I
began overhauling NBCOMBAT.ASM, including this comment
and the ROT routine (though it was named something else).  I
pulled out all the comments I knew were erroneous or uninformed,
but I had the impression people had gone over the kernal stuff
pretty thoroughly so I didn't pay a lot of attention there.
