I think this might work. Especially, if you had Hozer distribute the games on CD rom to play on
the Cuttle Cart.  A CD with the cart artwork and manual for less than $10 I think is possible. It
could contain the bin and a wav file for play on emus, SuperCharger, and Cuttle Cart and still
pay your royalty. As a collector/gamplayer, I'd buy it. Especially if it was packaged nicely.

Just my 2 cents...
