such a thing would really have to be on penguinppc

anyone who wants to properly maintain such a document should contact
me about getting an account on penguinppc.org.  (Chris?)

as for getting a link on the ports page, i suppose you have to talk to
debian-www about that, getting debian pages updated seems to have been
a somewhat slow process at the very least, which is one major reason
why i don't think we should bother trying to keep such a hardware list
there. besides the fact that a distro indepenent one is probably
possible and would make more sense.
