I have actually ITP'd it (Bug #111106).  It looks good, from what I
have seen, though I haven't actually gotten it to work yet (my first
hurdle was learning python, which I have pretty much done, next hurdle
is modifying it so that it works in our native environment, as written
it is focused on complete cross development).  I have been in contact
from upstream and gotten some hints, they have been helpful.

I agree, Monta Vista uses a lot of different architectures so we'll be
able to spread the bug finding (and fixing) around. :-)

I'm actually having fun playing with it, but I don't want to hog all
the fun, let me me know.
