I'd prefer a Sony PSP engine.
My pre-bought Sony PSP comes in tomorrow!!! :-)
> Dreamcast engine
Dreamcast is dead. I went to the funeral.

I'd certainly hate to lose the UNIX engines, apparently a lot more than
most others on this list (I'd like to see them fixed, in fact -- I've
never been able to get RevDB working under Linux or Solaris), but
adding handheld support certainly sounds quite excellent if Rev can
pull if off. It's got my votes (well, some of them, anyway).
This will be quite a challenge, however, considering the smaller screen
resolutions of handheld devices, the rather different interfaces (for
example, Palm and many CE systems only ever have one window opened at a
time), handwriting recognition as opposed to keyboards, and so forth.
<wishful thinking mode>
Any chance of getting support for the old Psion EPOC32 devices, like my
Diamond Mako (with its built-in keyboard)? I doubt it, but hey, it's a
nice thought, anyway.

While I'm at it, why not a Gameboy engine, or a Dreamcast engine (more
useful than the gameboy, though marginally less likely)...
