Ok, it's technicly possible, sure, they could delve trough the various opensource os'es for pointers & all, but i don't think it'll happen.
Why? Those open source projects are done by people who do this for a hobby, it would make more sence then to adopt MOL to run AOS4 then actually do it natively (speaking in terms of time/cost) then a true native port.
A MOL approuch also eliminates drivers as such, just support the "MOL" hardware & MOL itself will do the rest, this is possible, but that brings up another problem, the licence, You'd need a modified MOL & a dongle for it, but since MOL is opensource, you'd have to make the modified one also opensource, leaving the dongle code to be easilly commented out, *unless* the dongle protection resides on the AOS4 side, but still, with MOL it would be easy to analyse an USB (eg) dongle's function (not that this can't be done already in other ways, but i disgress), so again, no banana.
I would love a macport of AOS4, i would get me a TiBook on the spot if it were possible, but alas, i doubt it will ever happen.
