Some people consider game ROMs to be artwork, but they must contain some logic too. They're unmodifiable and sourceless in any case, so I think we shouldn't provide software who's only purpose is to run those ROMs. Thoughts?

It's currently available in our software repository, but I think it
shouldn't be: its only purpose is to run non-free software (ROMs) and
part of the packages itself also seems non-free (2xSaImmx.asm license) [1].
