The data-sheet for the QB8 shows the first 4K of flash to be 'reserved', despite the fact that
the chip is otherwise described as '8k of flash'. Are users meant to use this area or not?
Does it actually work if you do?
A similar question arises for the 'as-advertised' 256bytes of ram. A look at the memory-map
diagram shows that half of it is reserved. 
Is this false advertising? [ LOL ] or can we actually use these areas without a penalty sometime
in the future?
Also, is there an .inc file available for this version somewhere?
