There is interest, and there is work in progress, at least
theoretically - though I haven't seen any indications of progress in
quite a while. Personally, the thing that's keeping me from working on
it is mostly lack of time, and until very recently (like the last
couple of weeks) lack of a 68k development machine. (I have a Slab on
"indefinite loan", specifically as a play machine for NetBSD/next work.
But at the moment other things have been taking up my time.)
