That stuff isn't exposed by the audit code, and I'm not about to change its API and complicate all uses of it for this, particularly not this close to freeze/realease. I also found a critical bug while testing this for a pretty simple case (launching any multi-part software from internal UI). I've already wasted enough time untangling the UI code just enough to do this (previously code to launch a system was in at least six places in the select game/software menus). It isn't my job to pick up the pieces after everyone. There are plenty of people ready to say MAME is unusable or buggy, but few willing to actually put in the work necessary to improve code quality to reduce the rate of rot.
