It means a few things:

1) Code can be modified

2) Code will run on CPUs that are MUCH wimpier than your average desktop

3) Allows the code to have the same behavior on any processor as it did on
the original processor (6502).

The code has been translated to C, and C is compilable on a LOT of
processor targets. Does that help?
