The z80/gbz80 assembler came from the pre-SDCC version of the Gameboy Development Kit (GBDK) which had been extended to the gbz80 by Pascal Felber. When I [http://sourceforge.net/users/michaelh/ Michael] started on SDCC I imported the assembler in as a separate fork to the existing mcs51 assembler. I looked at unifying the two assemblers and updating to a later version of ASXXXX at the same time but there proved to be too many changes in the forks and too much of a difference with the then-available 2.x version of ASXXXX.
