 0058, 0219, 0220: Centipede releases

Release order is:
1992: 0220 - Centipede (USA, Europe)
1995: 0058 - Arcade Classic No. 2 - Centipede & Millipede (USA, Europe) (SGB Enhanced)
1998: 0219 - Centipede (USA)

All three are the same version of the Centipede game. 0219 almost an indentical ROM to 0058, just with SGB and Millipede disabled, and some branding differences.

I therefore think 0058 should be added to the P/Clone group, and actually as the parent, since it's the most recent wider release, and since 0219 is just a cut up version of it.

I got around to this. My solution was to make "1998: 0219 - Centipede (USA)" be a clone of "1995: 0058 - Arcade Classic No. 2 - Centipede & Millipede (USA, Europe) (SGB Enhanced)". Same developers. Second version just has content cut out, as you've said. Thus the fuller version is the parent. Thank you.

I haven't checked to see if the Centipede on "Arcade Classic No. 2" is the same developed version as on the 1992 Accolade release yet.
