As a guy who's having a hard time getting back into the swing 
enough to overcome a simple jump-over-page boundary condition,
I should probably just shut up, but I don't think we should do
too too much 2600 specific stuff in the assembler itself.
There are a couple decent tools out there for making graphics
into code, and it seems like if we add all this 2600 specific stuff,
we'll lose some of the possibilities of being clever that 
other people have shown...
