Sega Smash Pack = Kgen?

Sega recently released a PC game entitled Sega Smash Pack which contains classic Genesis games. 8 of them to be precise. The games included in the pack are: Altered Beast, Golden Axe, Outrun, Sonic Spinball, Super Shinobi, Vectorman, Columns and best of all Phantasy Star 2. It has recently been found that this Smash Pack is actually running off of Steve Snake's Genesis emulator KGEN. For those familiar with the emulator scene, you will no doubt remember this emulator since it was known as the best Genesis emulator. I haven't played the Smash Pack but I hope that the bugs in KGEN have been fixed since the last free release because I remember that even though it was the best Genesis emulator out there, it was still far from perfect. My guess is that Sega hired Steve Snake and told him to continue developping his emulator (and maybe helped him finish it) so they could release a lot of their classic Genesis games at a profit instead of looking at people playing their games for free on the emulators. This is not surprising though because to my knowledge, Steve Snake already worked for Sega in the past (Sega Europe I believe). Anyway, if any of you have tried this game collection from Sega on the PC, let me know what you think and how well the system is emulated because I'm curious to see if Steve Snake was successful in emulating the Genesis completely with his latest built of the emulator (now probably a property of Sega).
