AY-3-8910/YM2149 would be awesome. I remember listening to them on STSound stsnd1.gif and finding them so good that I would start to collect them. This would represent my awaking to a world of FM music outside the Adlib's YM3812. Thinking it was close the the SN76489, I secretly did try to play them with SBVGM without too much conviction and of course it failed.
Although I wonder the implication of converting .YM to .VGM files since it seem to be the core of the Atari musics.
I think there might be .YM to .VGM converters out there, but I think the .YM format is perfect for what it does and would required less system resources for playback. The SN76489 can't properly handle YM2149 playback, though the SAA1099 and OPL3 could possibly do so.
