Speaking of which, I've tried using both fceu and tuxnes and can't get a

nice looking full-screen effect.  I keep getting the window manager 
border around the app, which really isn't ideal.  Xmame is nice because 
of the fullscreen command-line option.  Any analog in NES emulators?

Side note:  How about the addition of 2600 emulation through XStella? 
Let's go old-school.  I'd be great to play my 2600 games on Myth without

damaging my nice collection of carts or wearing out my joysticks.  I can

work on creating a new GameHandler class, perhaps.  A valid idea? 
stellahandler.[cpp|h], stellarominfo.[cpp|h], and 
stellasettings.[cpp.h], with slight changes to gamehandler.cpp to 
register the new handler if the XStella binary is found.
