I understand your legal reasons, but do you really think 
another Randy will ever try to double-cross me or another 
member of the community this way? ;-)

Coool idea!

than modifying a disassembled ROM directly (The procedure would 
likely be to keep notes of all modifications and then reproduce 
them in patch form) unless I can get clever and come up with a 
tool that will create the patch automatically based on the 
original and modified ROMs (Hmm, might be something to that...) 
Obviously I'm still in the preliminary stages of this.

Yes, such a tool would be great. And might be useful for other 
stuff too.

Have fun!
