Sorry, part of the commandline got lost somehow:

qemu-system-ppc -m 1024 -net nic -net tap,ifname=tap0,script=no,downscript=no ppc.img -cdrom debian-504-powerpc-netinst.iso -boot d -nographic
does not seem to do anything.

Without -nographic a prompt on yellow screen appears where you can type
something to boot an installer.
I think this is an error in how you're trying to boot the installer or your
qemu invocation rather than a bug.
I don't really know anything about powerpc myself, nor how to use qemu for
powerpc, so I suggest you ask on the debian-powerpc list for help.
Changing the "-boot d" to "-boot c" gives access to the installed system with full serial support from the quik bootloader so I don't think this is the case.
The installer does have serial console support and I'm not aware of any
issues with that on real powerpc hardware.

Perhaps on hardware different from the one qemu emulates?
