Apparently not: there's no Cartridge3E class and no mention of the string
"3E" in the source anywhere.

If you can point me to a web page or something with a good description
of the 3E scheme, I'll (attempt to) add support for it. Actually I
found your original post about it:

There may be enough information there... Though it'd be nice to have at
least one ROM image that uses 3E, so I can test my code. Apparently you
can't just send me your binary for copyright reasons, but maybe early
on in your work you wrote a test ROM that just switches banks and does
something like display different colors in the different banks...?

Also, you'll probably have to generate your own entry for
your binaries: I don't know if I'll be able to auto-detect 3E mode.
