Yes, both are GPL.  But right now, z26 is in x86 assembly, and Stella is 
in C++.  I don't know enough ASM to do the conversion.  Besides, it's 
not just the sound code itself, but timing and resampling issues.

I really need someone who knows more about sound programming than I do 
to look at it .  Perhaps they'd find the problem to be quite easy to 

Heck, even if someone took a look at the current way of doing it and 
made some recommendations, that could help.  I could probably do the 
actual coding; it's just the underlying timing/resampling *algorithm* 
that's eluded me.
