That's actually what DevOS/7800CTRL are doing too, but I think
the whole routine is a bit bigger than 128 bytes. It might be
possible to shrink it down enough though, if I removed stuff
that doesn't make sense in the 2600's 128 bytes of RAM anyway,
like the possibility to transfer special routines to the 7800
and execute them there. I'd have to look at the code again.
