Hmmm, that would require to (first record, then) playback an input file... it's theoretically also possible to do simulated input, but despite its peculiarities it's a platform dependent thing (which I want to avoid). I do this on X11 platforms in one case, namely to auto-pause embedded emulators, but it's not nice.

EDIT: perhaps a better idea would be to somehow (optionally) include the required inputs to start the software in software-lists, and adding an option to MAME/MESS to execute it?!
