I am also impressed with this, but I have a few questions.

How will these settings (particularly the pincushion) effect lightgun games and mouse games where pixel perfect precision is necessary?

Could the new shader functions be used to "place" the screen inside complex artwork? What comes to mind specifically are periscope games. Right now there isn't a way in mame to simulate the player looking through the periscope. In other words a portion of the screen is obscured and it pivots the view to the right or left as you turn the scope. This would definately add a layer of realism to games like seawolf.
