i think it would be neat if somehow SMB1 got brought to the GBA, (maybe as a fan made Super Mario Advance 5: SMB1 and LL)
it would have the updated graphics of the SNES version of SMB1 on SMAS, but also add the exclusives of the GBC port.
but the screen crunch on that game WAS TERRIBLE.
it's not as noticibly bad on the Advance games, just the vertical sections of SMA1:SMB2, where the screen has to move left and right so much just for 1 block of width. Super Mario World had stuff lowered and blocks moved around a little so nothing would be offscreen, and buy the time they ported SMB3 they perfected it, the vertical sections were narrowed a block, and the levels where the ceilings were moved down looked 100% natural.
there is a patch for SMB1 that replaces "1 and 2 player mode" with "Mario Game and Luigi Game" that gives the Luigi phisics, which IS AWESOME, but i'm not sure if it's on this site. (also, a hack that lets you change bros in between levels would be even cooler, or heck, just press select to switch between Mario and Luigi would be cool)
i would like to see a hack for Advance 1 SMB2 that let's you cycle through characters on the fly as well, that would be DOPE
this would be my dream hack tho, Have a All Stars hack that turns all the games into Advance versions, but no screen crunch
oh, i did read somewhere that folks were working on a GBA emulator that removed the scree scaling restrictions, basically allowing a more traditional view (kinda like overscan or something) but i dont know if it relys on modified roms, or just would work on all GBA games
