Well... The semantics of sigaltstack should be the same across Mac  
OSX PPC and Mac OSX Intel, at least I think so. HiPE is supposed in  
Mac OSX PPC from what I remember. I'm very much trivializing things  
but I wonder if there's a straightforward way to keep the Mac OSX PPC  
semantics while plugging in the Intel code generation.

If you would be kind enough to guide me I could look into adding HiPE  
functionality to Mac Intel as I have time to spare.

	Thanks, Joel
