Actually, people have been discussing on and off the possibility of
completing the port to the sun3x architecture, but nothing solid has ever
come out of it.  There are a few minor technical problems (like the fact
what hardware documentation we have seems to be somewhat incomplete), but
I believe that those could likely be worked around if it weren't for the
overriding problem that nobody can seem to find enough time to work on it.
