OpenHackWare is an OpenFirmware emulator intended to be used on PowerPC
machines. It is not a real OpenFirmware as it knows nothing about Forth.
It emulates the OpenFirmware boot time interface as well as the RTAS
interface. It also emulates some known "interpret" strings, to make it
able to launch known OSes.
