this sounds great!

when storeio and pfinet work (how do you use it without storeio?), it'd be
interesting to bootstrap debian and start building debian packages of the
utils. besides what you have, we basicaly need perl, sed, make, gawk and
g++ for that.

when you got these, could you put a base system tarball somewhere
for download?

and if you can offer access to a box running GNU on powerpc, that'd be
realy nice, too (i don't have any powerpc here)
