GREAT !!! I just can't wait to have a such tool in my
hands ;-).

BTW I have some other suggestions about the debugger
you plan to include into the emulator : 
I wrote a 80486 debugger for DOS (TSR program) some
years ago and it had nice features very useful : I
think it won't be very complicated to include some of
them :

- Suspend the program exectution regarding specific
conditions and :
- Allow modification of the registers,
- Edit memory to change datas or opcodes into the Ram,
the VCS rom program and the Registers
- Change the Program Counter (it was the Instruction
Pointer on the 80486)
- Search function for data, opcodes...

...Just some ideas very helpful for programmers 

Cheer up ! ;-)

Take care,
