* Before gen-3 hardware becomes obsolete, write emulator em3:4 and run all gen-3 software under em3:4 during gen-4 as when chaining; but also rehost em1:2 (or em1:3) on gen-4 hardware, producing em1:4, and rehost em2:3 on gen-4 hardware, producing em2:4.
This is more efficient than chaining since it eliminates the need to run one emulator under another.
Even using chaining, multiple bi-generational emulators will therefore have to be written for each new generation, whereas rehosting requires many additional emulators.
