if it were a 6502, but the 6507 can only address 8K (only 13 address 
lines).  So the top 3 MSBs of the address are ignored on the 2600 (which 
effectively creates a mirror every 8K).

so if you're ever REALLY short on memory and are using pointers in RAM, you 
can use those top 3 bits for something.  ;o)
