Neat idea. Just a request though - and not to sound like a downer, but if you do end up adding this feature, could you make it default to "off"? I think having JUST the bezel is perfect - this feature will decrease screen real-estate quite a bit more, which may be a particular issue for people with 16:9 screens, and for those of us with arcade cabs where it wouldn't make much sense to have "virtual" marquees underneath actual marquees. This is the way NeoGeo is right now unfortunately, and those marquees all have to be individually disabled.

Having said that, it's a neat feature for times when you might want to see the game AND the marquee at once. Another idea - you could include control panel art etc. too, where they exist - just to give the feel for what the entire "package" originally looked like to the player while the game was running. Just a thought.
