The development has been suspended until someone starts development. Carl
will stay with the 68k in the 1.0.x branch and not move to the 1.1 branch.
Pierre has very little time, so there is also not to expect from him. The
result is that nobody is working on it.

Those files are very old and i guess not much can be reused from those few
files. It will be easier to start from scratch.
