The emulators and the Cyclone20 both use pre-compiled plugins which SPS provide for various platforms.

Try to port an emulator to a platform with no precompiled plugin (e.g. XBOX, PSP, GP32 etc.) and you're stuffed.

The source code for the guts of the plugin is closed source. Which seems ironic to me considering this is supposed to be a preservation society. (Who preserves the SPS plugin?)

Love them all to death, great idea, very smart guys. I sort of understand why they want to keep control but at the same time this is not true preservation until they open source the plugin(s).
