Speaking of which, now that we have:

SCO/Intel -> Linux/Intel
Linux/Intel -> Linux/Alpha
DU/Alpha -> Linux/Alpha
SunOS/Sparc -> Linux/Sparc
Solaris/Sparc -> Linux/Sparc
(Pardon me if I missed any)

running, especially the later two, are there any plans to get

Solaris/Intel -> Linux/Intel

working? David & Miguel's Sparc/Linux paper seemed to intimate that
Solaris emulation was not hard, even after SunOS emulation took all the
reserved slot thingie-whatsits. I'm curious, given that the four
applications which run on Solaris/Intel might, if runnable under Linux,
draw an entire 10 new customers to the Linux community. In the face of
this onslaught by Sun, no emulation suite is too low for us to consider.
