Whoops, I was wrong! I just noticed I can make the buffer as large as I
like (hundreds of kb) without inflating the program file size. Good news.
That will easily eliminate two complaints: frequent spin-ups, and limited
line length.

Now my question is, how much DRAM can I use, without hogging it from other
needs? 70kb? 300kb? Currently when I compile I don't get the out-of-DRAM
error until about 1.7MB.
