Not in this case probably. I'm sure the other guys wouldn't like it,
if I'd throw out SC and Pitfall 2 support for example :-)

I've something special in mind, what in the result definitely

- won't be portable
- won't be a perfect 2600 emulator

I'm focussing on other stuff... :-)

But a class as I suggested might be a good one to share for all.

Hm... probably not, as Stella needs to identify every game,
whereas Z26 and I only need to know the games that need 
special treatment...

Well. Apart from being a one-liner in calculation, the CRC is only one 32 BIT value. What
more advantages do you need? :-)
