Yup, MCL2.0.1 runs fine under emulation on a PowerMac. I haven't
done any interesting performance checks, but the system "feels"
(to my relatively inexperienced hands) at least as responsive
as the same software on a IIfx, that is, pretty decent.

I haven't heard anything about a native version of MCL yet.

Sorry, haven't looked at a GX interface at all yet.
