He just has disabilities.

I'm sure a full PSX list will happen with time.

The one that is there was made of 'at risk' sets that weren't part of a major collection at the time.

At the time I didn't want to take it further because I didn't want to overwhelm people, especially at the emulation was a lot more hit or miss than it is now.

A way to handle / detect the various copy protected images with a higher degree of confidence would help too (a method to convert the custom protection data format various PSX emulators use into a standard sub-data track could be handy) likewise a set of tools to comprehensively compare CD images, similar to romcmp so it's easier to tell the difference between two reads.

Otherwise PSX isn't that difficult, just a large amount of data.

Something like ZX Spectrum library is a much bigger undertaking, to be done well something like that will require somebody to be dedicated to doing almost nothing else, especially if we want to analyze in detail all the various loading routines that were used and make notes of them, and when you're dealing with such a large set of data any additional notes like that start to become useful. Again MAME really needs to hit 100% perfect emulation before that happens tho, because right now some of the copy protection schemes are so timing dependent there are images that don't work. Even places like World of Spectrum aren't perfect such is the magnitude of the task - there's actually an awful lot of 'at risk' software on these systems, even some of the recent stuff or unique cracks that don't get the same level of attention as popular releases.
