It would be nice if there was a way for the enduser to add more  
emulators. Perhaps something similar to the way multiple video cards  
are configured in mythtv-setup. One screen lists your emulators and  
has an option to add/delete entries, then each emulator could be  
handled on it's own screen/s. Then on each screen you could have a  
"dropdown list" that has presets for different emulators, and an  
option for a blank text field. Depending on which preset you choose  
you get different fields to fill in, or a text window that is already  
filled with default settings for you to edit. again this is pretty  
similar to the video card setup. Throw a name field at the top and  
you could run different versions of xmame if you felt like it, though  
i'm not sure how this would work from the enduser point of view.  
Perhaps by adding a emulator selector in the game information screen  
(the one you get pressing 'i' in the game list screen). I think it's  
easier for a Newb like myself to have the presets as it lets me not  
have to figure out which obscure switch to throw to get an emulator  
working. But then again it would be nice not to see so much cruft in  
the setup pages.
