Well, I think you mentioned it earlier why people tend to be avoiding
"Supercharger specific" coding -- some programmers are envisioning releasing
the games as physical carts, and not everyone owns a Supercharger.  If
the games are written to use the extra 6K ram, then you will either need
a Supercharger to play it (on a real 2600 machine/clone) or find an
emulator that supports Supercharger games correctly (there isn't yet one
for Mac, and I have heard the ones for Windows/DOS don't work 100% correct)
