I received a pleasant surprise this weekend. A new version of AdvanceMAME and AdvanceMENU was released by the author. I am currently compiling it and testing it out. It is still based on MAME 0.106.
This is going to push back the PiMAME 0.4 release as I want to incorporate these new binaries into it.
