So how would one go about creating a sophisticated plugin? The gui
would have a filter capability, but the sophisticated stuff would get

Most of the fringe emulators could get by with just filters (make the
user in charge of putting good roms out there). Presumably all could,
though it seems we like to verify the roms first.
