My guess is that it would look like some of the crappy ppc boxes
that are effectively upgraded 68k machines from the factory. If
anything, take a look at the nubus-pmac project (on SourceForge).
It doesn't look like they currently support such things, but
they would be much closer to it than the main pmac porting effort,
which is primarily for the PCI based machines.
