Wow. I nominate Paul for the cleverest guy in the room this week award.
And with the example code, I was even able to see that the way I have to 
put in the Playfied (I can't use the outermost block because then my timing 
issues show) would work, the players as is are "inside" the walls so to 
speak.  This might just be doable!  I have plenty of time to position P0
in the VBLANK, and I just write both players to that player....hmmm,
there might be some additional challenges, off by one errors, or writing 

Oh, fudge.  this might not be easily compatible with a packed two line 
kernal :-(
