What about Linux PPC? Since both OS 9 and Mac OS X support Linux it seems logical to build binaries for the PPC architecture. Especially under Mac OS X with Apple X11 - wouldn't Python work then?
I'm sure others have thought of this and I apologize if this is ridiculous. I know enough to compile and build thru fink but that's about all. Those of you who have been working with blender sources under Mac OS X I salute your efforts.
