Is it possible to replace Mac OS Kernel with one from Darwin x86?

Since Darwinn's kernel has no protections whatsoever it should speed up our iHacks signifficantly if we manage to do that.

10.4.8 and .9 kernels are Darwin based, but it doesn't speed up anything.

10.4.10 is binary patched, so it's basically the same kernel as a real mac since Darwin sources aren't available yet, but you can be sure it has NO advantages of having any darwin kernel if your processor is SSE3 and isn't a laptop :D
