Well, the goal (for me) is something completely ridiculous:  I want to
"pimp out" my transparent 64 case with LEDs / NeoPixels (WS2812 5050
RGB LED), and be able to change the colors from BASIC with simple POKE
commands ;-)

Although, based on the discussion, it seems others have more noble
ideas in mind for such a capability.

The DMA suggestion is interesting, I'd forgotten about that.  Yeah, a
periodic poll from the microcontroller could work and not be too
