I'll do what I can. But you

I'll do what I can. But you know, manpower is limited, and the light of the PPC CPU is rather fading with Apples latest decisions, so the PPC code, in particualr the PPC-specific code doesn't have the highest priority for Einstein@Home. It will, however, definitely benefit from changes to the source code that aren't specific to a certain architecture, so there is still room for improvements. If I find the time, I'll be happy to incorporate what I've learned writing the Intel assembler code into a PPC App - but I can't promise right now neither when this will happen nor that it will happen at all.
