Dietmar is talking about async delegate support and remoting: support
for them is not yet integrated in the interp, though when he'll move the
code from the jit to the common runtime library there should be no
arch-specific changes required to support ppc (just changes to the
interpreter itself).

It may be that the ppc port and the other ports didn't implement the
changes required by the new string structure (a constructor returns
void, but the string constructors will actually return the string
object, so you need to special-case it in the trampoline function).
