	- HyperSPARC CPUs, to my knowledge, are not yet properly
	  supported.  Aaron/Paul, please correct me if I'm wrong...

	- To my knowledge, the 4/600-series is not yet supported.
	  It may not be that hard to make it work, but it'll probably
	  require some work.  If you have a 4/600, you're a perfect
	  candidate to work on it, and I'm sure Aaron/Paul/others
	  would be happy to help you out.
