Heck, we shoulda mentioned Jake Commanders Chromkey. That was quite
an enhancement to rsdos for coco1 & 2's. Broken on 3's unless you
used the original code which was itself broken slightly because the
3's already used the himem I put the other two versions into. I had
a lot of fun doing that, and Jakes code was actually my intro to
assembly language on the coco. So I have a fond memory of it.
