no telling..aside from all the known ones, you've always got J.Q.Doe out
there with his C++ assembler deciding he's going to write his own, or hack
someone else's to the point where it's basically just something new..

yes.

i think atari users ought to be happy they even if they only had the

not that common..and if they aren't happy, let them go write one..or
re-compile someone else's..
