Seems one of the more common sentiments around here (myself included). I
was wondering if we could get a statement from Sean et al. on where a
software emulator is in their priority list or even if it is in the
queue of things they're developing in-house.

It will be a while before I get my hands on a Neo (March?) but I'd
really like to start coding now.
