Surely you couldn't draw that conclusion from that quote alone? ;-)
Ok, someone mention the words "endian" and "problem"... Which would suggest that the extra effort to deal with the fact that Motorola CPUs traditionally traditionally used Big Endian format and Intel CPUs Small Endian (basically Intel = reverse order of how bytes are read into memory vs Motorola) but I doubt that is anywhere near the main problem. Most likely the devs don't think its worth the effort simply because number of active PPC users is so small compared to Intel users..
