I counted three.  Now there are four.  I'm not even sure Stella was
first.  There were two more or less simultaneous projects happening on
Linux in the mid 1990's.  Dan Boris would know something about that.

So what would you call the resulting emulator if you accomplish what you
proposed in a message on Mar 15, 2004 where you said:

"I've come to the conclusion that the only way to do it is port the 
relevant sections of z26 to C or C++ and integrate it into Stella."

given that the original emulator was called "z26"?
