Heh, okay :)

Yeah, that's not as easy as it sounds.  D-RATS depends on a large python
runtime stack, not all of which is endian-safe and thus can't be
compiled into a universal binary (from what I understand).

Oh?  I didn't realize you could do that.  I imagine Python (et al) would
be pretty slow in that mode, but it would be interesting to try.  I'll
try to get a PPC version up at some point and then you can let me know
how well it does or does not run under emulation.
