If that's what you want to do, is write a BSD style licensed coco emulator.
What platform will you target, or will you make a multi-target platform
emulator? If you know the C language you could get the dragon emulator
source code. I think the coco's inside of mess started with this source
code, but I could be wrong. Alternatively you could target the minix source
code and if you could adapt to this operating system you could have a good
start on making your own emulator; included below is the minux license.

So I guess that means there is no Free (either GPL or BSD style
licensed) Coco emulator.
So maybe new ground still to be broken on the coco emulator front
after all: better licensing.
