Would be really nice to have it! There was a small error in what I  
wrote above. I am almost sure that you understood correctly but to  
clarify: I wasn't asking to implement it "instead of" but rather  
"instead of only".

:-D Hehe - Some people here know how "US Centric" I am ;-) But I don't  
hesitate to give credit where credit is due and to me those two  
library positions were always the fundamental ones, which got later  
translated to also German. "Alles über den C64" is AFAIR the German  
version of PRG and I have both but in doubt I refer back to the  
original (English) one.

I see. As I wrote - it is not something very important but I found it  
when I included some files and got surprised that such "obvious"  
things like CHROUT didn't work.
