Well, in the implementation I was preparing, I was using
the playfield update lines to check for end of screen.
These interfered with sprite changeovers, so it would
be possible for the playfield logic to make a sprite slightly
longer than normal if it happened to be aligned wrong
with respect to the playfield.  The external sort would
have to be pretty slick to know about that.
