Hey, I'm trying :). Look at the dates in the diffs in the tech-net
message.  I hope to commit splice(2) this week-ish.

If I can trust my (dim) memory from about one year ago still, one big
stumbling-block is lack of support for generic softints, primarily on
macppc.  But maybe I'm misrememebering Matt Thomas(?) suggesting we
nuke generic softints, and just replace them with kconts?
