It's an excellent example of "the only thing greater than the (very
large) amount of effort has has put into the project, is the
conviction that his way is the only acceptable way"

I think we should add the new open-simh fork, plus a big warning

next quarterly branch (to determine if we drop the old simh(4)
package, or take some other action).
