I don't know when it will be ready.  I'm attempting to develop it on the
Quadra 700.  The current difficulty is in communicating with the SCSI
bus.  If I can overcome that hurdle, then we should have it working on
the Q700 and similar systems soon after that.  I don't know how
different the Performa 475 is from the Q700.
