Well I am was a programmer too and I can say it's even more easier than before. When I wanted pong back into MAME or to re-add unsupported NEOGEO games to it, I had to file compare between source releases manually and look line by line for differences. Now all you need to do is to track down the change into the SVN by author and driver and revert them back yourself for your PRIVATE build.

PRIVATE build. Do you know the meaning of that? It means a build for your own use only, hence you don't distribute anywhere else. No developers know it exist, no one will ask you to take it down (unless of course you are a selfish prick who likes to take credit for work not yours). There's not need to redistribute it because it isn't even a derivative build, but a personal taste change for your own. You are just too lazy to do it yourself and you are expecting someone else does the work for you.

EDIT: And here is half the work done. Now you are the programmer, it's up to you. I would but I don't care.
