The alien toolchain wrapper is pretty much done and getting into sbox
1.0.3. Currently toolchains need to be built and configured for a
specific version of sbox, alien wrapper allows using prebuilt
crosscompiler any toolchain.
Open redirector, which is what my BoF description mostly is about,
is far more incomplete. There original code by Lauri was lost in a
HD crash, so I've been reimplementing in it bits of the extra time.
Now I have a working prototype, and the biggest missing piece is the
configuration for the redirector.
sbrsh2 (sbrsh without nfs), is more on the idea stage still.

qemu still needs to linked against libsb, but the whole idea of
scratchbox2 is to use unmodified host tools instead of custom builds.
