MCL in emulation mode on a PowerMac (?)


We are currently running MCL on a Quadra 800 for the purposes of doing
A.I. research programming.  We are looking at acquiring an additional
Mac, either another Quadra (630 or 950) or a PowerMac.  The concern 
about getting a PowerMac, in addition to the question of MCL's ever
getting ported there, is what kind of performance can we expect from
using MCL in emulation mode?  Any info out there about performance,
reliability, potential limitiations, etc. for using MCL in 68K emulation
mode on a PowerMac would be appreciated.  Also, what kind of PowerMac
is the "minimum" for "reasonable performance"?
