TOS executes programs in the AUTO-Folder by Pexec(0, ...). Hatari catches the 
call before actually emulating the trap instruction, so theoretically you can 
manipulate the mode to 5 (create basepage only). That way TOS will do the 
needed allocations. Then you have to find a way to get control in the emulator 
when that call returns, load the program directly, relocate it,  and pass a 
2nd call to TOS with mode 4 (just go). May look a bit strange, but it works 
(i'm doing similar things in my modified version of STonX, which does not need 
the cartridge code at all).
