Sad to say, but there IS a project for porting Wine to the PowerPC 
platform:  Darwine.  It has stalled and really could use help.  It has 
forked so that there are two paths of development and the Intel fork is 
being worked back into the main Wine project.  That leaves the PowerPC 
fork to be worked on to incorporate Qemu, an x86 emulator for the PowerPC.
As to the Aqua 'look and feel' there is an effort to do this as well 
that may or may not need assistance.  The goal in that project is to 
remove all Object C code and replace it with 'c' code equivalents.  You 
can ask the status of that project on the  Wine Development list.

Again, this is not the area for discussing development of Wine.  Let's 
move this to the appropriate venue.

Thank you.
