Basically, yes. They are 16-bit devices, with the A0 line selecting which
16-bit word you should look at - and all the 'magic' addresses must be
placed on the address bus starting at A0. But they decided they wanted to
be able to use them with an 8-bit bus, so they added an 'A-1' address line

Do yourself a favour - don't. Just accept it. Or do me a favour and take
responsibility for it from now on :)
