I'm looking forward to seeing this kind of thing done someday.  Now that the
TIA schematics are available one would expect that it would be
straightforward.  But I'm very curious as to how straightforward it would
actually be.  I'm not sure if by looking at the TIA schematics one could
predict for example the Cosmic Ark effect, or any of the multitude of other
weird effects having to do with sprite positioning.

Good question.  But I like the idea of a hardware oriented approach to see
if the machine can be re-implemented in what would appear to be the easiest
possible way.  Then maybe the understanding of how the machine actually
works could be *ported* to software.
