Implement everything missing in OpenBIOS compared to OpenFirmware or implement the missing parts in OpenFirmware to reach the current state of OpenBIOS? I don't know, but Apple's OF is likely closer to the open source OLPC OpenFirmware than to OpenBIOS as they share origins so it may be more compatible with that.
They do not share heritage. Apple OF is a fully separate implementation, with all of its own bugs and extensions and peculiarities.
Good luck and have fun,
Was just an idea anyway and only mentioned it to explain why I don't want to put too much effort in OpenBIOS. I'd rather have some fun instead.
I meant that seriously :-) I don't say these things to discourage you from taking any path. Instead, I tell tales of what monsters lurk where, in the hope that your journey will be less frustrating.
Good luck and have fun!
