Can you set the CPU to do any speed you want in V8086 mode? If so it might be possible to create a program that will approximate a 386 or a 486 with in-order execution and the proper feel using any newer CPU by disabling features via V8086 mode.

Thoughts?

Just musing, so if I'm blatantly wrong, don't hate me, heh.
