For one, $ba is not the current drive, but the last used output device.
Second, there are CBM machines, where this doesn't work. For the PET-II
machines, the last used device is only accessible via a cross bank access. So
it makes a lot of sense to keep the "current drive" internal to the cc65
library and just initialize it by some (maybe platform dependent) means.
