Regarding emulation of all PPC systems:
Would it be possible to switch the system to little endian mode inside the 
qemu process? That way, one could run Windows NT, which I always wanted 
to try (but couldn't, because I don't have the necessary hardware).

This could also (with a slightly different approach) bring better speeds for
i386 computations.

I had to bite the bullet a month ago and install Bitkeeper (precisely for
and I can't say I like it. It's really sad that there seems no other way to
up-to-date MOL sources.
