Yeah I guess that makes sense you could enforce the limit by a certain
amount of disk space, given the contest is 2K of code or binary
whichever is smaller. I guess I was still thinking about how *I* would
set up the contest... 2K of RAM, not 2K of code.

The funny thing is that this was posted to a speccy list orginally I
think... and a 2K binary doesn't have any chance of loading on such a
machine. So ZX81 programs not using a RAM enhancement will be at a
disadvantage in the contest.
