OK, this is actually not true. I tried initializing the CRTC in a BASIC
program which gave me strange results. But when we perform directly a
SYS 35859 (which changes the five CRTC registers I wrote about before),
the graphics display is correctly turned on. So the suspicion was
correct - writing #$02 into CRTC register #$0C should turn on the
graphics display.

I think these are enough information to re-implement the HRE in VICE -
as it turns out, the board usage is pretty straightforward. I will try
to post ROMs on Zimmers later today.
