Well, sorta ;) You need to do some magic with gcc and the libstc++ library
or things segfault all over the place (PPC uses egcs as the default
compiler and libstc++ that comes with egcs is apparently not thread safe).
If anyone wants to try it, I strongly encourage you to contact me.

How hard would it be to make venus communicate with codasrv via shared
memory or UNIX domain sockets when on the local machine, instead of via
the localhost interface? (or is that just too much work)
