Rastan Saga maybe worth a mention? The horrible front end I use (IV/Play) has Rastan (world rev 1) as the parent version. Rastan Saga (Japan rev 1) would be the proper one, with:
- intro sequence and music missing from world version
- different story text on each level clear sequence, instead of the same generic message in world version
- less bats

Hence this thread. Know of any additions where this choice isn't ideal?

It's just a reference document.

With AttractMode I can pull the set names into a "Better.tag" file and plonk "Better" into a filter, so it has indirect use there.
