I parse all files manually, so such a thing would not be an issue. The easiest and most robust way for me to support it is to require a MAME.INI with a rompath, with a fallback to "ROMS" in the same folder. Generally speaking, most Supermodel users already have MAME installed and roms are all in the same folder. With the MAME sharing, you get all the MAME add-ons such as picture and data files.

EDIT: My Front-End is updated for Supermodel now if anyone wishes to try it.
