yeah, hopefully those who understand this will continue to put in the work, it's an important area of MAME, not always popular when it brings drivers to their knees performance-wise, but we can't hide from it forever.
yeah, would be nice to see progress in this area unlocked again, the way things were done before hasn't helped us, too many things others weren't able to reproduce / do for themselves. There were people who wanted to get on board with this in the past and couldn't because the software / exact instructions etc. weren't available to them, I'd view this as one of the darker parts of MAME history.

already discussed, would be nice, can't see happening.

mostly low hanging stuff at the moment tho, there's still something fundamentally wrong with the driver we're not understanding.
