Neat, this might finally convince me to buy a PS3 :)

I've recently done some Cell programming on Linux for my master thesis
and might be able to help with porting.  BTW may I recommend to not use
the official Cell-SDK, but instead only the three packages ppe-gcc,
spu-gcc and libspe which recently became available natively for many
(Power-PC) Linux distros?  Installing the official SDK would be a major
hassle for people wishing to participate.  Also some of the IBM libs in
the SDK might never make it into mainstream distros due to licensing
