I thought of that just a short while ago... two problems I can see so 
  1) speed - I'd have to use QEMU (*not* QEMU-KVM) to emulate the CPU in 
software, so performance would be horrible.
  2) the only distros that even have a snowball's chance of booting in 
QEMU appear to be Ubuntu-PPC and some mythical Linux-MIPS distro that I 
can't find.  And both of those appear to be highly problematic, since 
QEMU isn't exactly mainstream!

If you know of refutations of either of those, I'd love to hear about
