GO64 tech stuff?

Something just came up on #c-64 IRC channel. Apparently there's an
interesting article about a new hack found with the VIC-IIe in the German
GO64 magazine. Has anyone read this article yet?

<ThunderBl> the VIC with 62Hz was great...
<ThunderBl> vortexion: on C128 in C64 mode it is possible to kick the VIC
into leaving away rasterlines!
<ThunderBl> MrX: exactly that. displaying less rasterlines, thus
increasing screen refresh. 62 Hz or something. on some monitors it doesn't
work, but on those on which it does, it's very cool :) especially for
interlace pics etc.!

I'm most intrigued. Perhaps there are hidden registers, something like the
plus/4s TED registers. Or maybe it's a completely different hack of the
VIC-IIe's implementation.
