This is significant and hopefully a good thing. The old sh simulator is
legendary, in some circles for, probably, all the wrong reaons. Still
Firstly, GDB already has an SH simululator that can be used to generate
a sh1, sh2, sh3, sh3e, sh4 and sh-dsp (but only one at a time). Does
this new simulator cover that set or only a subset? i.e. is it a drop
Secondly, the MIPS, mn10300, d10v and other IGEN simulators support more
than one cpu variant (can't use ISA - see binutils list :-/). How does
this simulator go in this regard?

Anyone can do that anytime. See src/MAINTAINERS for the process.
