And they didn't even bother to hide it much, from the sounds of things on BetaNews. Same strings, same error messages, same config files, etc, etc.

How weird... I have a new arcade emulator called "CherryCade"...

runs thousands of games...

All you need to do to get it running is edit your mame.ini file and your good to go!

They didn't even try to make the name all that different. It's like ripping off Final Burn and calling it "Barbeque" or changing RAINE to "Thunderstorm". Creativity, people! :)
