This sounds great, but do we have an AmigaPPC version where we can use 
this in?

As far as I can see, there hasn't been anything new on the AmigaPPC side 
since 2001/07/11 when the page was updated just a tiny bit. As far as I 
can remeber, it has always claimed there would appear more details 
shortly. I hope it's note shortly as in 5 years.
