Btw, if you want to have your own Debian/mipsel system, you can:
 - Get the latest qemu CVS checkout (the current version in debian is too slow)
 - Build and install it
 - Create a virtual disk image with qemu-img
 - Get the Debian installer for Qemu/mipsel from
 - Install the virtual disk with something like
   qemu-system-mipsel -nographic -kernel vmlinux-2.6.18-3 -initrd=initrd.gz -hda=disk.img
Performance is roughly a tenth of the host speed.
