Very interesting idea.

But I am not 100% sure it works on real hardware. The problem might
occur when accessing the RTS at $FFF8. This should switch to bank 1
(trigger at $FFF9), but also triggers bank 0 immediately before. AFAIK
this might cause timing problems. At least it did with my first
Battlezone TC hack, where I used some similar trick. It worked on CC
and emulators, but not on real hardware.

Have fun!
