that could take some time (currently in progress improved OAM drawing routines, to finally fix the "sprite limit" and the priorities; next target probably HDMA), but thanks a lot for both the direct and indirect help you gave: your source is a wonderful reference for what is currently known about the hardware; your notes on the OAM are being precious, explaining the few points that were unclear to me after reading bsnes implementation; and I borrowed the logic you used for SuperScope Turbo Mode which saved me some time in figuring out a fast way to toggle the right keys when necessary [1]

sad but true. but I'm especially worried about having to test 4000+ games by myself, whenever I try to make things closer to the hardware... well, at least we might hope that some MAME users decide they like MESS due to the common UI and options: this might give us a few more regular testers.
