I disagree, it may not be a problem from the compiler development
point-of-view, but a simulator is much worse then an emulator which
gives you a much closer reproduction of the working of the real

iPhone runs an arm processor, then you may have a perfectly working
x86 application then bang, alignment failure in the arm processor.
While with the PocketPC emulator this problems are captured right in
the emulation step.
