Is there a large demand for the eb ones? I think sh3 and sh4 should be enough. 
I still haven't seen a good explaination why sh3/4 need to be separate. I read 
that the ABIs were slightly different but I think I heard somewhere that gcc 
could be made to generate code that works on both. Can someone please point me 
at a good explaination?

I recenty bought a Dreamcast system with the intent of playing with this 
stuff. I would like to see this issue resolved quickly.
