So cool! Are you looking for someone to do the 6502 core to go
along with this? (Not that I know anything whatsoever about vhdl.)

In case anyone hasn't heard, the "other" 2600-on-a-chip project
has been bought by RetroGames LLC, which will be releasing
2600-in-a-joystick products that can actually "play all the
games" from the original ROMs rather than running reproductions of them:

I don't think the author of 2600-on-a-chip did anything wrong here,
because I don't recall him ever asking others to help under false
pretenses that the end result would be open source or anything
similar. But it sure would be nice to have a 2600-on-a-chip project
that *was* open under a license that guaranteed it would stay that way.
