In my opinion, the various A-series emulators just need to be more usable, more stable and to be written with more than win32 in mind. Thankfully, Mr Naulls has seemingly put in the work to port RPCEmu to Linux, thus saving me the bother of having to tear out the win32 code that's spread around in the sources, but it'd be good if the code could be compiled to produce a minimal program that could just be run from the command line or extended with the appropriate graphical user interface toolkit, or even wrapped for a high-level language like Python. Fancy (or non-fancy) file selection dialogues are easy to add to extensible software, but awkward to remove if the code relies on them in different places, for example.
