I think it's rare enough feature that it doesn't need to be in SDL GUI [1], 
command line option could be enough.  I don't think SDL GUI would even have 
screen space for the 8 devices for which your change added support. :-)

If you have proposal for what kind of command line option(s) it should have, 
I can add that.

[1] options that can be set from command line, but not from SDL GUI or 
shortcuts (in addition to debug options):
--gemdos-drive (partly supported in SDL GUI)
