Nopes. As of now, it is really just a Z80 emulator (read: it emulates
the processor, not any of the machines built using it), and some
things like interrupts are still not complete. Once those things
exist, I want to build a ZX81 on top of it.

I think we should harvest what's there first, and then see what's
missing - to fill in holes.
