I notice that you've applied your usual trick of flattening camel-case in
the SWI names. SWIs are case sensitive, so you'll get "SWI name not known"
if you don't use exactly the case prescribed by the module developer.
1. Also, this is invariably following the standard laid down by Acorn. Being
universal, there's no need to look up the case for each SWI one types, which
saves time. Please don't suggest changing it.
2. Apart from the couple of OS SWIs where Acorn didn't follow their own
convention. Fortunately, these are memorable enough that I can always
remember that I need to look them up.
