I for once have wished for an In-System assembler since the start.

Had the commodore 64 as a 13 Year kid, and 1 month later got the HesMon 64 Assembler for testing by a computer magazine, and I was hooked ever since, especially since we could do so much more faster routines, we frequently added assembly/machine code to our games / demo's as the C64 was only 1 MHz.

However - one of the charming parts with the CMM2 is that it's hideously fast even in BASIC, so it's actually possible to make GAMES IN BASIC that's as fast as a C64 and even faster.

But if you made such an assembler, I'd probably use it :)
