Soon, I hope.

I'm putting myself in debt to get a Q700.  I hope to get it running
on that.  I don't _plan_ to port to any more Macs after that--although
I'd be happy to have someone else do it and would welcome their code.
As for PPC, I hope to work on that at some point--like maybe buy a PDS
upgrade for the Q700 after I get MacBSD running on the '040...  Of
course, that's not a trivial effort.  With the 68k, there was already
an existing hp300 port to work from.  With the PPC, there will already
be some drivers that we can use from the Mac68k port, but a lot of
stuff will have to be reimplemented.
