I'd like to get some feedback on what you've done to get around this.
(Buying a real cartridge is frequently not an option)

What I've found so far:

Atarimax Maxflash - seems to only handle non-bankswitched roms and regular binaries
http://www.atarimax.com/flashcart/documentation/

S/XEGS Ram Cart 128K - This looks ideal, but can't access buttons with 400/800 cartridge door closed (I suppose I could override the lockout button)
Anyone using these?

That looks great. I'll have to do some checking into this.
