I think that will do; at least it should contain enough information to 
work on the saved-program-state and the interaction between the client 
image and OF.  Alas it's quite far out of my sphere of knowledge though.

Igor has suggested a C version in his previous email, although again I 
don't really know enough about SPARC to know if this is valid or not.
