Yes, and those people don't even stop when politely asked for. :-(

AFAIK at least one of them is also a [stella] member.

Me too. I just dont know/have a tool that supports the very special needs 
I described. Do you???

And I don't think it would be an easy task to program a good one. 

Scanline palette optimisation might be quite easy and migrating that 
palette from line to line maybe too. 

But you have to *combine* that with some advanced dithering algorithm 
with feedback loops, backtracking etc.
