Oops, sorry, that should have gone to the list, not to you personally. 
Why can't the list server add a reply-to header?

Works for me. Isn't it supposed to?

But make using fn-ctrl and fn-option, like the default is right now, an 
option too! I like it much better than F10/F11. With the right hand on 
the trackpad, it's way more convenient to reach the bottom left corner 
of the keyboard with the left hand than the top right.

I didn't try MOL yet (doesn't it work?), but I agree that it is an 
essential application and it would be nice to have packages for it. 
AFAIK, Qemu doesn't boot any Mac OS yet? (PearPC neither, on big endian 
hardware?) And it would be a bit slow, anyway, emulating its own PPC 
instead of virtualizing the host processor.
