Well, It probably won't take too long until DragonFly can operate in 64-
bit mode on AMD64, since Matt owns one of these boxes. 

Interestingly (and slightly offtopic), what ever happened to the FreeBSD
PPC port and it's developers? Maybe we can lure these developers here so
they can port DFBSD to the PPC (and G5). ;) This might be interesting to
the IBM people too, since (as far as I can remember) RS6000 machines are 
based on PPC as well. It would be very interesting if our beloved insect
could exploit it's future distributed capabilities on big iron.
