On the contrary, I'm speaking for myself; and you're putting words in my mouth.

You've misunderstood my response and it's intent.  As it's 6 am and I just
returned from an emergency response session, I'm not able to respond fully
to this, but here's the short of it:

I've seen this "you programmers must do it our way! AND NOW!"  attitude cause
other emulation projects to END.

Oh, and I don't see Mustafa's earlier projects stagnating, I see them complete
and running on the hardware they was intended for.  He did that without the
"help" of the people on this list micromanaging his project.  I know he'll
complete the project without the list, but it's good that he's asking us for
our contributions.  After all, his focus is NOT on multiplatform - it's on
a specific platform; but he's offered us his source so we can use it on OUR
platforms.  Heck, he's contributed to Vice and Mame - helping those get
running on the Gp32x.

So no, I just don't see Mustafa's project stagnating.

Sorry you do, though, as I really don't think he needs OUR help.  We need HIS.
