Hey!  Delphi is one of my favorite programming environments!

I do agree that there is a lot of time spent by three different teams
writing separate 2600 emulators.  Ideally if there wasn't this overlap, we
could potentially have a really kick-ass 2600 emulator with lots of
interesting features people probably haven't even dreamt up yet.

Realistically, though, it might be difficult to get all those people to work
on the same project, because some of them may want to work on the same
aspects of the code, and managing projects always gets more difficult as
more people are involved.  And having competition between different
emulators isn't a bad thing if it encourages them to evolve more quickly
than if there was just one emulator.
