I haven't seen any mention of Power architecture in the A4. Everybody
says it's an Arm, in particular, the ARM Cortex-A9 MPCore.

I do hope Apple opens up the iPad for interpreters and compilers. As far
as I know, it will ship with the same limitations as the iPhone and iPod
Touch, meaning that we could make a CCL for it, but would only be able
to ship compiled apps, no eval or compile.

Actually, I hope they unlock it completely, and allow you to load any
software you want on YOUR computer.
