Sorry, that's a little bit of work coming into my normal
thought process...  I was just picturing storing all the games
in a SQL database and web-serving off every version by bitwise
comparison.  It wouldn't have to be SQL of course, but that's
how it is done at work.

Actually, Starpath is an interesting question though -- how
different are PAL & NTSC, are the Brazilian Canal Supercharger
games different yet, do the non-Starpath Canal Supercharger
games match up with the cart versions, etc etc.

Gotcha.  And a nice estimate to have.
