That would add very few people and involve a lot of additionnal work - and i don't even have a config to test/debug that.
Perhaps i'm just too lazy, but nevertheless.

A wider use makes it more worth the effort. I see little point in spending weeks working on some game only few people will play a few times (especially when it doesn't include myself)...
I don't want to make them shareware or otherwise proprietary - they don't really belong to me. Only thing needed is a good motivation ; for now i just don't have it - and being broke doesn't help working for free.

What I had in mind was to let people decide for themselves if such a port would float their boat to the point of giving (or giving again) a few bucks to make it happen.
That was exactly my point, in fact.

All my game ports are HD installable - they're made for that and always will.

Unless we have something real filthy at play, disassembling the code is actually the smallest and easiest part...
