[MacRuby-devel] a modest request

I realize that Laurent and company have their hands full with
simply trying to make JIT (etc) work on Intel hardware.  So,
I don't expect anyone to make this work on PPC hardware, as
well (at least in the short run :-).

However, it occurs to me that it might be possible to "guard"
the Intel-specific code such that it doesn't even TRY to run
unless an Intel processor is being used.  This could allow
PPC users to play with new MacPerl releases, albeit in a less
optimized manner.

Is this is a possibility?
