I'm actively pushing the PPC implementation of V8 into the Google code base
- however this takes time, and they are only (logically) interested in
bleeding_edge commits.

I don't expect to see PPC support in upstream V8 prior to 3.30 or beyond
(it's currently at 3.29).  Many users of libv8 expect 3.14. The V8 APIs
continue to change in breaking ways, so newer versions are not drop in
replacements.

And yes - our PPC implementation has 32/64 BE/LE and simulation (Intel
Linux). Pretty much every combination. I will mention that some PPC
implementations (freescale) do not implement some of the FPU instructions
we depend on (or they've got an alternative implementation that is not
compatible).

I understand that this code also covers powerpc 32 bits. At least, that is
what
the owner (Andrew) of the code told me.

Anyway, let me copy him to it, to assure that this is correct.
