You can replace CMPA #0 with TSTA to save one more byte.
Alternatively, you can start with A at 15 and not bother with the DECA
at the start of the loop. Then replace your CMPA #0 with DECA and use
BMI to branch if you've gone past 0 (negative). (DEC sets N (negative),
Z (zero), and V (overflow) correctly. It just doesn't change C (carry))
