I also think this would be a great game to have in woody.  It would be 
even better if it wasn't i386-specific.


To answer James' question, although pingus itself is not i386-specific, 
the libraries it depends on (ClanLib in particular) are sadly full of 
Intelisms, and it took a fair amount of coaxing to get a working binary 
(as opposed to just a binary) on my alpha system.
