it's extremely difficult to create a startup/cleanup code that supports all CPUs, MMU configurations, VBR relocation, caches, CIAs... and is able to restore them back when quitting.

whdload is the best program ever for that. Even Tiny Bobble which has an excellent startup & cleanup code triggered a recoverable alert on my (emulated) machine upon quitting. Whdload version doesn't have this issue. Plus if your program performs illegal read/writes, whdload will catch that.

(of course whdload can't avoid blitter overwriting part of the unsaved chipmem, but that's a cornercase)

As I said (in "subcontract it"), I can help with the whdload slave. Then you can read the source and knowing your program will help you figure out what's needed to create a whdload slave.
