I emailed Johnny Lee about a Linux port and here is his response.

Hi Jim,

A linux port is definitely possible, but mostly likely not by me as I am not at all
familiar with Linux development.  I'll put out a request for linux developers to make a
port, but that is all I can do.  It's a very small program.  So, it would take a
competent linux developer 1 day to make.


So he is at least open to distributing his source, and has no problem with any Linux
developer helping out.  If anyone thinks they might be able to take this on you can
download the code here http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~johnny/projects/wii/ and if there are any
questions (no documentation I guess with the code) contact Johnny at johnny at cs.cmu.edu.
