I would expect that very little of the arch-specific code would be useful
for a PPC port.  From what I've seen, there are very few similarities
in the hardware between the m68k and PPC macs.

I expect that a port will happen--if Apple releases h/w info about the
systems.  I have picked up a MPC601 manual just in case I can ever afford
one... :-)
