[COPLIN, Nicholas.]  
There was already a commercial cart for downloading games two via either
tape or even via the SID output of a C64.  I too have thought about building
a simple RAM-cart for the 2600, but its limited native addressing space
means that you'll also need latches etc to emulator the bank switching on
carts of greater than 4kB.
