I'm waiting to hear back from the author, myself.. I've added
raw image support to atasm, also the ability to specify an output
file (instead of being stuck with filename.65o), and the ability
to define variables on the command line (like -DNTSC=1, which is
a feature DASM has that I personally couldnt't live without).

Also, I've added the ability to turn illegal opcodes on or off via
a .OPT option in the assembly source, during assembly (so you're
not dependent on the user to remember to add the -u on the command

One thing I don't know is what the license is on atasm. I didn't see
anything at all in the source declaring the code to be public domain
or not, or whatever. We don't want another DASM mess...
