    Please wait for a few more days, until I release the details of the CPU I am
    making. It will be completely 32 bit, so even the 16 MB barrier will not be
    there. And YES, of course the new CPU is code compatible with the 6502,
    except for the illegal opcodes, because I need space for mapping 16 and 32
    bit opcodes in the map.
