Yes, it does.  Its all trade;  do you add ColdFire bits to UAE and then
go through the hassle of getting uClinux to boot, or do you add the
other bits to the emulator at lightbox.  I understand that performance
of the emulator at lightbox can be improved, and I see ways to speed
it up, or do we take all ot the above and produce one frm scratch that
has the benifit of being usable as a simulator by GDB?

I'm happy to go in any direction, I just want to know its the right
one :-)  As a side note, I've already started on building a UAE style
instruction decoder for ColdFire, and have a decoder that produces a
full table for V4. It should be pretty trivial to have it genreate the
table at startup based on which CPU model you want...
