Hey Ryan,

Suggestion on supporting the multiple Mac platforms (coming from my
experience of working with a similar setup on an embedded environment
on nearly identical PPC and x86 processors).  Rather than
shipping a UT executable which is multi-platform, why not just have
the installer detect the HW and install either a PPC or x86 binary.
It will save some disk and probably have other positive performance
impacts as well.
