FWIW, valgrind 3.2.3 is about 97% complete on 4.x, about 90% complete on 
6.x+/i386 (no threads support), and about 70-80% complete for 
6.x+/amd64.  I still have unresolved problems regarding syscalls that 
involved arguments on the userland stack.

It is well and truely up to the point where I need testers/helpers.  
Most of the heavy lifting is done and there's a thousand sharp edges 
that need smoothing.
