:=) btw, it maybe a good idea to allow the pragma to occur several
times in the same source.... (one could think about creating a bunch
of headerfiles of which one maps the charset to petscii (lowercase),
one to petscii (uppercase) one to screencode etc pp)

wohooo very cool.... (since this would also allow to create "clean
looking" .petscii, .screen etc macros!)

maybe creating such a "charset-remapping" functionality for the
assembler itself wouldnt hurt either (its not quite trivial to create
a macro that accepts arguments like the .byte pseudoop does for eg,
would be much more easier to handle that way then)
