Well, with a 1 MHz 6502, you have less than 500ns from _CS low to 
deliver the data. That's less than 10 cycles on a 20MHz AVR.

I think one would need a CPLD or the like to emulate a CIA or VIC and 
with both you'd have to be cycle-exact since even the one cycle 
difference between the 6526 and 6526A tripped up some software.
