Your offer is appreciated.  We want to run on '040 machines, but there
are several obstacles.  Currently, our focus is to get a semi-stable
release out and get the IIci and IIsi working.  After that, it looks
like there is a lot of interest in '040 support.  Unfortunately, Apple
used different hardware in addition to the '040, like a new SCSI chip,
so a number of drivers will have to be updated, too.  Without a machine
to work with here, we'll probably have to count on other people to help
with this.  But that's the point of free software, right? ;-)

Anyway, I'm rambling...
