Not sure what you mean. It was a 68k emulator that implemented part of the old mac rom. Not sure how this helps with PowerPC or Intel OS X.

Well it is an example of emulating the old Classic 68K Mac and running software apps for that platform.

I felt it is related to the OS X emulation effort, they'd just have to add in a PowerPC emulation and then do the Macintosh system ROM a bit to run Mac OS X code, potentially.

I thought it might be of use to those looking to run old 68K Mac apps.

If anyone is looking to run an old 68K app, let me recommend Basilisk. It runs System 7 really well. I haven't tried anything newer.
