There's currently a PowerMac client in the works, but we're in desperate
need of somebody who can code the network interface portion of the client.
MacTCP is a pain, and I don't have the time to learn it from the ground up.
If anybody knows of a functional library that will provide UDP connectivity,
and will compile under CodeWarrior 8, please e-mail me. If anybody wants to
volunteer to code that portion of the client, please e-mail me and I'll send
you the specifications.

The most desirable implementation would be for somebody to rework an
existing BSD-style socket library to compile under CW 8 (with robust UDP
support.) That way, the code could stay more or less consistent with the
other clients, and could be reused if needed.

I also wouldn't mind any PowerMac assembly gurus to hop on, so we can
optimize for various PPC processors.
