i would implement two different conio modules which can be linked as needed 
(simelar to the soft80 thing for c64 for example).... and i dont like to have 
any target specific code in tetris to be honest (infact i have tried to avoid 
them as much as i can, and i probably can remove them all when the c128 and 
geos stuff is fixed).
