Oh I agree, but much (if not all) of *that* can be fixed by choosing to 
pay attention to the structures defined in the 10.4uSDK headers instead 
of those defined in the 10.4.4ppc source headers.  That's not to say 
there isn't a lot of work involved, but just to say that AFAICT it's not 
a complete washout.  Worst case is that OpenDarwin 8.x/x86 works on 
Intel Macs but can't drop into OS X/x86.  Best case is that it can, as 
long as you steer clear of redefining maybe a couple of driver projects.
