Cool idea! I really like your creativity! Actually I had tried using
the interlace mode here myself too, but my approach was different
and the results looked pretty ugly. I suppose your technology
will work better.

I am not absolutely sure here. IIRC my experiments with interlace on 
the Atari 2600 looked quite flickering. But maybe I am wrong here.

Yes, but IMO you are also reducing the effective vertical resolution by 
combining 3 lines.

Maybe. :-)
