The thing is, if you have a small header file and a relatively small 
binary, you can easily produce a commented listing.
And "LDA #$3c: STA PIA2_CRB"  is much better understood when there is 
a comment "DAV hi".

One thing I would like to have is to set comments (and labels) relative
to another label, So that you could move a routine for example and 
have the comments moved in one piece. Or "lda STACK+2,x" something like
that. That's not in recomment.

recomment can already produce a assembler output "-noaddr -labels" instead of
"-long -html" when producing the listing. Then there also is a listing
of labels used.
