I think the issue was how about one for Carbon.
However the issue now is what about building one for Project Builder.
Alas I've not built one. But mmm since you've some interest would you
like to build one? Take a look at the mpeglib bundle to see how I
build a bundle to be used by Squeak VM 3.2.1, that was easy.
Also note that Andreas actually wrote the powerpc FFI, strange as
that might seem. Here we think he only knows intel stuff, but wait
didn't MS give us WinNT on the powerpc at some point so I guess it's
ok he also knows ppc assembler.
Actually I bet you really should look at the unix ffi stuff because
after all this *is* a BSD unix system you are fiddling with.
