Don't know if you are missing it or not, but a PowerPC SoaS (i.e. Linux
kernel + GNU/BSD/whatever userspace + X11 + Python + Sucrose, all
compiled for PowerPC) will happily "update" its activities to newer
Intel-compiled ones that will then fail. Pure-Python Activities will
work, but ones containing embedded libraries will fail.
Apart from that, I can't think of other obstacles at the moment.
