Yeah, i am aware of these facts. Its a crippled core, no debugger etc. in it, but i think you get the point what i have tried to say . Replace RA with a fictive MAME derivative, that would have the tools. Its just a silly poke from me here. You cant deny that a huge user base, isnt attractive for a developer. Where would be the sense in developing, if really nobody pays attention to the product . Of course its very honourable and noble, that the devs are mainly developing for preservation purposes, but a non-existent userbase would be a median catastrophe. We all know that all of this will not happen anytime soon (hopefully never) , no matter how the changes over time will turn out.
