Anyone know if a loader for Mach-O binaries for Linux has been written?

Thanks,

Trent

I started working on one a while ago but I ran out of time to  
dedicate to the project.  My schedule is opening up again, though, so  
I plan to start working on it again.  At this point I have most of  
the actual loader code written, the problem is that the syscalls  
between Linux and Darwin are very different and need a binary  
translation layer which is still in the concept phase at this point. :-D

Cheers,
Kyle Moffett

I've written one before for the Boomerang[1] project.  Don't worry
about the system calls, that's not the point.  I do wonder if you can
mix Mach-O and ELF binaries in the same process however.. that would
be good.  If you like, send me the code and I'll take a look at it.

due to work constraints.
