It seems the file contains full source code to the menu 

I've read about even more advanced cartridges for VIC-20 and of course other 
Commodore computers, so the stream never ends. The question is just which 
ones fill an economical purpose enough to make a production run and which 
are just one-off projects. There is even a PET device that hooks it up to a 
network through the IEEE-488 bus. That one has a rather small Flash ROM but 
instead of a memory card thus depends on a master computer to load files 

I suppose most kinds of expansions either have been made or have been 
dismissed as pointless. I don't know what would be feasible and useful. The 
infamous Z80 cartridge for the C64 comes to my mind. Has there been other 
CPU families interfaced, and would there be any benefit from e.g. adding an 
ARM co-pro like some of the Beeb people have done to their BBC Micros?

In any case, nice work by Marko!

Best regards
