It is true that the 6502 is messy to code for. And the stack is 
restricted to 256 bytes and all. But the 6502 instruction set is very 
RISC-like...simple instructions that execute quickly. Instructions 
took from one to three clock cycles to execute. I believe that was 
*part* of the attraction of the 6502.
