Tested with:
- Lunar Magic 3.40
- SA-1 Pack 1.40
- Snes9x 1.62.3, Bsnes-plus 05
- Asar 1.91

First of all, apologies for taking so long to moderate this -- I claimed it and promptly got sidetracked.

- I'm accepting this, but with some reservations. In some cases, layer 2 will still "slide" under Mario without dragging him along. This can happen when the layer scrolls in a way other than some sort of autoscroll, particularly with normal BG scroll and L/R scrolling. Realistically, you need to set layer 2 horizontal and vertical scroll both to constant for any kind of sane behavior for this. Given the way that SMW treats the layer 1 position the same as the camera position, I'm not sure what a good overall solution here is, but I think it's worth considering in a future update.

- There's also some odd behavior when grabbing a net/vine while on the ground and/or getting pushed into the ground, but I think that's minor here.

- Added a comment on the free ram define, because it wasn't clear that it was actually intended as free ram.

- Unmarked this as a "bug fix", since it's kind of debatable what the intended behavior is, and that this itself introduces a whole new set of edge cases.

One of those types of glitches that only exist via ROM hacking, since the devs never used climbable objects on a moving layer 2.
