    Actually, I only know a bit of python. It seems nice but I've been
    caught up doing real work (and learning PPC asm at the same time.)

    Well I know python is endian-clean. I'd suspect it's even 32/64bit clean.
    So it's not a matter of 'port' but compile. And Linus has done things which
    have made lots of kernel hackers scratch their head for a while. (Jump
    out of this fire and into the min/max macros in 2.4.9 fire to see
