#12 Make kernel and basic roms optional


AIUI there are several rom files included in libsidplay v2, which make it illegal to redistribute the library. They are not needed for basic play-back of sid music. Why not make these files optional and only load them from hard-disk if available?

    I've suggested something similar to the authors of libsidplayfp when I've been told about it: https://sourceforge.net/projects/sidplay-residfp/

    It could be that it would not be an easy task, because the emulator backend would need to work in a degraded mode, if it relies on Basic/Kernal ROM functions to be available by default.

    And checking libsidplayfp 1.0.1, there is some activity related to those images. In file NEWS:
