Bug#84395: ITP: z81 - Sinclair ZX8 emulator
Z81/Z81txt/xz81 are ZX81 (TS1000) and ZX80 emulators
for (respectively) svgalib, text mode, and X. They
load/save Xtender-format .P files, and support the
ZX81's pseudo-hi-res mode. A few ZX81-related utils,
GIFs of the keyboard layout, two PD tetris clones,
a PD minesweeper clone, and a pear tree are included.
(Just add partridge.)
Z80 emulation and much X code from `xz80', copyright (C) 1994 Ian Collier.

`zx80.rom' is a copy of the ZX80's 4k ROM, and `zx81.rom' is a copy of
the ZX81's 8k ROM - both are copyright Amstrad plc., and are used and
reproduced with permission. (Amstrad allow free use of the ROMs in
emulators, but retain the copyright.)
Packaging Commentary and Questions:
I am intending to build this as a multi-binary package - one for
SVGA, one for X, one for the console, and a 'common' package
containing z81get and the ROM images.
Since I havn't been able to find a copy of the actual license for
the ROM images, it looks like they at least will have to go in
non-free. Can I put the rest of the packages in contrib, or do
they have to go in non-free too? (And if they can go in contrib,
should I split z81get into a fifth package so that it can go in
