Ok, tack on 'console', and the fact that 99.9% of console 'programs' (ROMs)
out there are extremely undistributable, as opposed to something like a
Macintosh emulator for which there exists a good amount of software you can
download, and I think the difference becomes more apparent. Same with
something like a script interpreter or an image viewer. It's far, far easier
to find free (as in beer) content for those than for a console emulator. I
*think* that's the reason that console emulators end up in contrib instead
