Done. Should be in the next snapshot.

Just out of curiosity, I've had a look into the books I know I've used a lot
in my old Commodore times and when writing the first versions of the platform
libraries. It seems that the list in kernal.s is more or less a direct copy of
the table on page 10 of "C16, C116 und Plus/4 ROM-Listing" by Christian Quirin
Spitzner. While it is not a C64 book, it is a "Commodore Sachbuch" by
Markt&Technik and bears the Commodore logo. I do also have a set of copies out
of a another book that uses the same names.

I don't think is does make much sense to rename the labels. They are used in
many of the basic CBM files, so renaming would be needed for *all* CBM
platforms - which will probably be confusing. If you need other labels, just
add a module "mykernal.s" doing

        .import BSOUT
        .export CHROUT := BSOUT

and link it to your application.
