Obviously, if you think you have cause for concern about conflict of
interest, best that you do what you feel is appropriate.
However, this makes me wonder: do you think _I_ should feel concerned
about conflict of interest regarding contributing/merging SB-1 and
related simulator changes? If so, well, who's left maintaining the
MIPS sim? 8-)
I think it's quite appropriate for the maintainer to be an active
developer (and contributor), with an interest in making the simulator
better and more featureful, FWIW.

*sigh* you have much more experience than I, obviously, so this is a
loss, but I understand that you're probably over-stretched.
