I have no plan to support other PowerPC machines. The
next target I'll work to support is x86 PC (as a grub
2nd stage image).
Petitboot is just user space Linux programs. It has
generic UI's (currently just an ncurses one with a twin
one in progress but not usable), so it is not too
difficult to create a bootloader image for a new target
if that target is supported by OpenWRT.
