It certainly won't work right now, as it still requires several
small 601 modifications to the macppc-specific code (use of
the rtc vs. tb, and the battable), and to the PowerPC-specific
Open Firmware hooks (which weren't an issue with prep).

If you have such a machine (601 but otherwise supported
hardware, i.e. 7200 or 7500), drop me a mail off-list and
we'll give it a try.
