  Description     : Memory Array Redcode Simulator

A while back there was a package in Debian called "corewars", where
assembly programs battled to control an VM's memory.  It looks like it
was removed because it depends on GTK1 (not GTK2).

I was interested to actually get around to trying it, but I'm not
quite interested enough to bother compiling / packaging it myself.  It
looks like there is a reference simulator posted on usenet, written in
C, and a bunch of different simulators that were subsequently derived
from or inspired by the reference implementation.

I haven't investigated which one should be packaged, or if any are
DSFG-licensed.  If none are, I guess this ticket can be updated to
reflect that and at least it'll be in wnpp-check next time I remember
corewars.  The above links include a list of implementations.
