Not really.. the last couple of years only me and Jay Estabrook were
working on Milo anyways. It is a big nasty bunch of code that noone
really wants to touch.
I still have the plans to use the last few code snippets that are usable
to get OpenBIOS as a simple bootloader for AlphaBIOS/ARCS based
machines. Like, the PAL code and some early init should still be usable,
all kernel linkage must be removed. 
No idea whether I will actually get to do this before everybody stopped
using these machines though ;)
My own Alpha machine is SRM based, so I have no immediate pressure or
testing possibilities anyways.
