It was worth the couple of hours to finish the port of the KERNEL stubs
to BASIC 2.0 (The PLOT routine needed work).  I have a *working* version
of ZORK for the PET!  Unfortunately, the same source still does not work
on the 8032, so I've narrowed it down to a difference between the BASIC 2.0
ROMs and BASIC 4.0 ROMs, not PET ROMs and C-64 ROMs.

Go to my page, get pet2001bigzip, load it into VICE configured as a PET 3032,
then stick in either game .D64 file and run.

After all these years, the PET can now play Infocom games!

I have not yet tested restore/save, BTW.  There is a slight possibility
that those may be broken, but only because the code there uses a lot
of OPENs and CLOSEs and PLOTs.
